I have just recently been studying the Seattle housing market and had a question for the bigger pockets community?
I haven't done any deals yet given that I am just starting, but what is actually the best way to start?
and does any one have any advice (books, articles, etc.) that I should read or watch?
Hey @Cameron Brulotte welcome to BP!
Before you even begin to look for potential "deals" make sure that you get your skill set up to par, if you are in this to build a business marketing and sales experience will take you far (did not mean to rhyme there).
In my opinion, you want to use your skills as leverage for any deal that you do, NOT loans or money.
At the top of this page there are a TON of resources at your fingertips, the podcasts are great just to give you an example.
Best of all BP is a great community that is able to answer any questions you may have.
Find a real estate meet up or club and go. Read the Bigger Pockets e-book and wholesaling and real estate. If you can, find a local mentor or someone who can set you up with their resources.
Get some education, decide what you want to do in real estate, look at marketing, and take action.
You don't mention what it is you want to do in real estate.
And last, welcome to BP.
Hey Cam - welcome to BP!
I send a free video-based WHOLESALE ACCELERATOR course (+ sample contracts) to anyone in BP that sends me a colleague request! I think you'd really benefit from that. Send me a colleague request WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS included and I'll shoot the course video links + contracts over to you in an email.
Here is the Video #1 of 3 if you'd like to check it out right now!
I have listened to a lot of the podcasts, I dont have to much capital, however I have pretty good credit
so I believe starting at whole saling is the best for me now
I mean is MLS, Craigslist, backpage, ebay sight or redfin the best place to start?
