Best Way to Learn Real Estate

Hi BP, 

As a hopeful future investor, would you recommend learning about real estate through a property management job or would it be better to become a analyst for a mortgage broker?

Thank you for your help!

Depends on what you want to be. 

Decide which kind of investor you want to be (SFR, Commercial, Land, Tax Liens, HML, Multi-Family, Notes, Fix & Flip, Buy & Hold, "Subject To", apartments, duplexes, assisted living, REOs, Foreclosures, Short Sales), etc.. Decide how much money you have access to, & the zip codes, city or state you want to focus on. That will determine the next step. Outline where you want to be in five years. Put it all in writing. Start working your plan. There are plenty of people around to help you each step of the way.
