    Excellent advice. I would even recommend learning to evaluate properties by taking an appraisal course at a local community college. You need to be able to run the numbers to see if properties can cash-flow or net a return as an investment. Especially in a market where appreciation is declining, real estate valuation tools prove to be crucial in success.

    I personally haven’t taken an appraisal course, but I probably should. Valuation is certainly one of the most important things that an investor must do before purchasing a property.

    Nice to hear about others who are just starting out in the world of real estate. We kept our first house that we bought while still in college and rented it out when we graduated and moved. It’s been a great experience and I’m currently looking for my next rental property while saving for the down payment. I’d recommend finding a great mortgage broker who can shop your application to at least 100 different lenders. You need someone on your team who’s in the business everyday. Nice blog by the way.
