A hard money lender is a good idea but can be expensive. I am also young. Instead of purchasing properties and becoming a landlord or rehabber I learned how to wholesale properties.
I turned a problem into a profitable business. I was interested in real estate at a young age but I couldn't get financing because I was too young. I then learned about creative real estate investing, specifically wholesaling and it has been great ever since.
You should look into doing that rather than purchasing a property.
If you have any questions I have no problem answering them for you.
