Hey @Keerah Linnen welcome to BP! Keep absorbing information here and check out a few local Real Estate Meetups in your area. I actually obtained a real estate license to learn more about real estate in general and for access to the MLS.
You're in the right place, keep asking questions.
Keerah, real estate sales and real estate investments are two different animals however obtaining a real estate license would be useful in the sense that you will be more familiar with "some" of the terminology used, you can make connections with other realtors, get an understanding of the closing process and you will have the "inside scoop" on properties that have not hit the market yet. I myself am new to real estate investing however I've had my RE license. You're definitely in the right place to learn all you need to know in regards to RE investing and as Mr. Mc Sherry state very well, keep absorbing and join a few of the local REI meet up groups and REIA groups. Good Luck!!
