Step by step process on how to start investing in real estate

5 Replies

I know the subject may sound a bit naive only because I do consider myself naive when it comes to real estate investing. These past months Ive been reading on real estate investing but still do not have any idea on which strategy to go with to start. Any book recommendations or videos i should watch to just help me get my foot into investing?Currently living in the CA, and have below 2k on the side to invest into REI. The main thing i want to get out of this post is some advice on HOW to start asap, but in the most smartest way.

Thanks for taking the time in reading my post :)

welcome Solomon,

Ok, here is my lowest cost, fastest start...today....check out all the forums, blogs, and any podcasts on bigger pockets, always free. Then with just a couple of k, I might not even buy a book..I have blog on the classics of landlord lit, and they are old and in the library (free) and a bigger pockets blog (by Carson) is up now and has a nice list for beginner investors and those may all be in the library, too, or at least the older editions...that should keep your mind active a few months....then for the future months, just keep learning and saving up for the first property to buy and hold or flip, etc, whatever your chosen strategy...

Best of luck
