College student with $1,200 want to invest in rental properties but don’t really want to use my money if have to. Any advice and understanding would help.
Find someone that you can do work for who's doing the type of stuff that you want to get into. If you do a good job, they might let you do some of the leg work on a deal in exchange for a cut of the equity. Once you've been a part of a few deals, you might have the credibility to raise private money to do deals on your own!
It'll take a bunch of hard work though. Don't underestimate that. You should start by reading some books from BP and talking with people at your local real estate meetup.
