    My Question does not pertain to lawn but I'm looking at being a property investor. The problem is that I'm only sixteen! Is there a way to obtain a loan at my age anyway?

    Really depends on how long you've shown to have credit history. Can someone co-sign with you? Can you show steady income over the course of XXXXX months/years? You may want to further educate yourself on this topic by reading books and speaking to RE brokers/agents, loan officers, anyone in the field. Good luck.

    I dunno how things work on the LEFT COAST but I suspect you cannot enter into a loan contract until you are 18.

    and then you are going to need a co-signer. you sound like a kid with big plans. I hope it works out for you. good luck.

    I am going to do that too, but you need to wait until your at least 18 and even then you are going to need a good income and probably a parent to sign.
    My brother is a loan officer for HR block and thats what he said. But I wish a lot of good luck to you! :waving: You can make verrrry good money if you invest right. payup

    Just remeber not to overextend yourself because real estate is not a highly liquid asset. Persoanlly for your age put it in a drips fund or index fund for now and finance your own loan on a property latter in life, why pay interest to someone else when you can be paying yourself first.
