For your current situation BP will surely be a great resource for you. I would also suggest you see if there are any local REIA clubs in your area to attend. You will meet other locals there and make connections that will be critical to your success.
This website will give you all the information that any expensive guru will. It's a great start that you're here! I also second seeing if there is a local REIA in your area so you can meet people doing what you want to do.
What exactly do you want to do in RE? Buy and hold? Fix and flip? Wholesale? Other?
There are a couple of meetups around town you could attend to network. Listen to some podcasts, set some goals and ask some questions.
Welcome to BP, Now all you need to do is spend that extra few dollars a day and become a Pro member so that you can get the full value of BP. You will never regret it. Always remember the best thing to do is to take "Action" get out of your comfort zone.
