REAL ESTATE BOX COURSES - WHICH IS BETTER, BEST?

9 Replies

Hi, I was looking into buying one or more Real Estate Home Study courses.  There must be a hundred of these courses available right now.  Can anyone recommend their top 1, 2, 3 Commercial Courses that helped them get started in Commercial Real Estate?  Ones that i know of are Scott Scheel, Ron Legrand, Jason Gilbert, Russ Whitney, Karen Hanover, Cherif Medawar, Monica Main, Lance Edwards, Terry Hale etc..., Sue Nelson etc...

Which of these courses have enough or and the best material that could help jump start a newbie into the commercial field of Investing, with little money?

Thanks, George

Best advice is to check out this website and review what people have done. This site has valuable information but in Commercial it might not be up to where you'd like the level of information simply because not as many people are involved with it as, say, single family homes. Specifically, check out the commercial forum to start researching which programs people like.

Note: the OP mentioned Hanover, and JD posted an interesting article on her. Though they aren't ALL bad, I believe one should beware of gurus. I am not aware of anything they can teach you that cannot be found online or in books at a fraction of the cost. There are threads on BP from various people who spent thousands and tens of thousands of dollars for guru help and felt they simply got taken.

I would consider Michael Blank who has a great blog and was on an episode of the BP podcast. Another regular contributor is Ben Leybovich and he offers his Cash Flow Freedom university for a low price.

@Ben Leybovich Apologies Ben. I meant affordable not cheap. Especially when compared to those outrageous GURU seminars, boot camps, bus tours etc....

i say that a real real estate course is the one where you find amentor who is so busy he needs to train you from the ground up..

If these course guys are so great in real estate why are they selling seminars??
