Advice, helpful sources and direction

2 Replies


I am brand new to real estate and am looking for helpful resources to educate myself. How does one decide the exact route they want to go, and what is the best option for a beginner? Any guidance in basic beginner steps to take would be greatly appreciated.

First step is to educate yourself on the business of Real Estate and your market. You really need to immerse yourself and learn all you can. Listen to podcasts, YouTube and read books. Attend REI groups and meetups and network with other experienced investors. Ask questions and be a seeker of wisdom and people will help you. Just make sure you are talking to the right people.
