I am 100% new to the real estate/BP world but would love some advice. I am a college student and definitely want to pursue real estate ASAP. I was wondering what should I do this summer in term of internships, and how do I go about generally getting started? Is it worth working at a REIT for analysis training?
Welcome to Bigger Pockets. BP is full of resources. You will find resources here from blogs to pod casts and forums. You can also send messages to members. This is one of my favorite features of Bigger Pockets especially for asking specific questions.
To a post with a similar question/profile, I recommended a range of summer ideas (from hands on maintenance for a property management firm, to doing signs or showing prep for realtors) but if you could land something at a REIT even better... But much of what you see on this board is probably not the REIT type holdings...
This community tends to be more small landlords and smaller scale investors... but all kinds chime in..
I have blog up on the Classics of Landlord Lit for some ideas on the scale (and most should be free in your library).
