FI approach to Personal Real Estate Transactions

First off, what is FI and FIRE?

FI is a philosphy of pursuing a financially independent lifestyle.  It's a community of people who seek to optimize their financials to spend less than they earn, so that they can achieve Financial Independence.  The idea of financial independence is simply living without relying on a paycheck.  This is generally defined as having enough passive income to cover all expenses.  This helps free a person's time to pursue their own dreams, instead of focusing a lot of time earning money and working for someone else.  Even if that person chooses to continue working, they have a lot more flexibility because they don't need the income from that job to survive.  The acronym FIRE is simply an extension of FI, meaning Financial Independence Retire Early.
