There are lots of myths surrounding real estate investment and how you can get started. While there are many, here are three ways you can get started—even while trying to build bigger pockets.

In this video, I break down three common ways to get started. (And no, none of them include HGTV-style flipping…)

1. Be a landlord

2. Become a Partner

3. Invest in Real Estate Securities

Check out the stock market for real estate holding companies. You can buy a share for as little as $20 or $30. Or, check out a crowd funding platform to invest in a property for as little as $1,000.
