Starting From 'Ground Zero'...

2 Replies

I am brand new to real estate investing. I want to start out wholesaling houses just to build my initial investment income for an advertising budget being that I have no credit nor my own cash after going on disability from going completely blind. I have part of my sight back now, and I want to start contributing to the household income through real estate investing. The problem is that I don't know anything about analyzing deals, nor anything about how to "chunk" analyze repair costs in renovations of a property. Does anyone have any suggestions or tips for me? The quicker I get started, the quicker I can start paying off debts and building our nest egg.

@Roger Vierra, Jr. Welcome, you have come to the right place.  There are a lot of posts that can help answer your questions.  Use the search bar and you will have a lot to read.  I have heard that a few of the books under the Learn tab are very helpful.  I would also suggest going to your local library so you can save on having to buy books and that way if you find one your really like then you can buy it.  I would also suggest that IF you end goal is to get some rentals, that when you start looking for wholesale deals that you also ask the seller if they would to seller financing so you can start keeping them yourself.  Of course you need to make sure your numbers work, but there is so much free info right here that should be helpful.  And if you have a specific question, just post and I am sure someone here will give great advice.

take care,
