Finding a “legit” real estate investing club

I recently saw an article that talked about real estate clubs, and the different types that are out there. I’m not sure where I saw it, but I thought it was important to reiterate some of their points.

First, they mentioned that there are 2 types of clubs. The first club is basically a way for the founders to boost their egos. They usually base everything about themselves/their accomplishments and the goal is to sell their books, software, programs, etc. These are the bad clubs! Stay Away!

The second type of club is usually a learning & networking bonanza. These clubs have speakers who provide educational information on various subjects. They are usually comprised of people from all aspects of real estate who are looking to both network and learn. They exist to be a helpful outlet for local investors and professionals. These are the clubs you want to be a part of.

So . . . if you’re looking to get involved in a real estate club (which I highly recommend), check the club out before shelling out a years’ dues. Make sure you’re getting the second type of club. You’ll be sure to benefit and learn a ton!
