Interested in real estate how to start.

I live in San Diego CA, I have intrest in real estate but don't know where to start. Any tips?

Christian,

i'd say you need to figure out what exactly you want to do in real estate. Are you interested in being a broker? Are you interested in leasing? or if its investing do you want to do single family? fix n flips? buy n hold? multi family? Land? storage? mobile homes... the list goes on... Like any business figure out the end goal and work backwards. 

Hi Christian,

What would you like to acheive and what experience do you have (either in real estate or some other related field)?

Definitely agree with Leo. Almost imperative to find what you like and find what your real estate niche is. Since you're just starting out,

I'd recommend focusing more towards one specific niche instead of trying to become a jack of all trades. Then as you gradually become more experience, you can branch out to other niches.

What is your niche?

-Rental property? Single vs. Multi

-Fix & Flips?

-Buy & Hold?

-Etc. Etc. Etc..

Quick tip: Ask yourself the " WHY? " in real estate.

 Agreed! You need to ask yourself “why am I interested real estate”. For us, its so we can retire early and enjoy life while we are young enough to do it! Buy and hold is the best strategy for US. My friend is making a killing flipping houses. He likes the cash from doing the work because he likes to be involved in the day to day buying and selling of real estate. that’s the best strategy for HIM. Find your niche, crush your niche, then explore other niches to crush.
