Attend Sourcing seminar?

1 Reply

Hi,

There is this Sourcing seminar near me, it sounds good because its a small group  of people only and the mentor told me he will also sit with me to figure out how I can start sourcing deals since I am VERY LOST on how to start with Real Estate. Also he said he will give me the documents he himself uses to source deals.

The cost would be around $470 for a full day course. 

My issue is, is it genuinely going to add value and help me get me started? Or am I better off gathering all the information off biggerpockets, by reading and listening to the podcasts?

Thank you :) 

$470 for a full day course is a reasonable price unless it is simply going to be a selling opportunity for a more expensive coaching group. (this is often the case in the real estate coaching business) However even if it is good information, you simply are not going to learn everything you need in one day. 

Is $470 a lot of money to you? If so you should probably pass. If you wouldn't hesitate to spend that much for a night out on the town then it might be an OK place to start. 

Check out the free ultimate beginners guide here on BP. That is certainly a great place to start.

My guess is there is nothing you would learn that you can't learn here on BP but some people do better with in person learning.
