Hey everyone, I'm young and in the military. I'm just looking to invest in real estate soon and I could use all the do's and don'ts if you guys have any! Thanks in advance!
Read the forum here as a daily routine. Ask a lot of questions, nothing wrong in asking questions here on BP. Read the blogs. Listen to the podcasts, read the RE books recommended by others here on BP. See where you're station at if there's RE Meetup in the local town. You'll be able to talk to other RE investors at the Meet ups.
Don't rush into RE investing. There's a lot to learn before that first deal.
@James Balser You have came to the perfect place to learn. There are a ton of ways that you can get into REI and BP will help you learn where you'd like focus on.

I am still in the learning phase of my career and will be here for at least two years as I have money I would like to save some cash for a down payment for #househack.
Being in the military, you could qualify for a VA loan which would allow you to finance a property with no downpayment. This could be very beneficial once you are ready to start investing in Real Estate. I would do some homework and research on that subject and also on out-of-state investing if you are looking purchase a property where you don't currently live.
