It's not lucky to make money in real estate,

It can be luck, or it can be skill.

I merely suggested that buying a starter home near the top of a market and making enough profit to buy two starter homes in many markets smells like luck rather than skill.

The poster presented no evidence of skill, or hints of how to buy a starter home that has the potential for a good profit several years down the road. In short, there was nothing of value suggesting skill. Therefore, I pointed out that luck was a possibility.
