Investment Advice

3 Replies

How and where does one find an appropriate advisor with regard to investing. Specifically on the following:

  1. Creative ways and options to fund investments
  2. Types of properties
  3. How to get the appropriate education


The answers to these questions can all be found here, on the BiggerPockets forum(s).

Thanks Leon.

There is indeed lots of good information on BiggerPockets forums. The amount of information is also quite overwhelming.

There is no simple nor short response to your questions since real estate is such a huge industry with many branches buttt here is a general over view..

-As far as funding goes best advice i can give you is find an investor. Do your numbers right and show him what his percentage return will be on his investment.

-You could also wholesale, put a property under contract then assign it to someone else for a higher price

Type of properties?

single family homes, multi family, condos, mobile homes, commercial, vacant land.. or did you mean Foreclosures, short sales, tax deed properties, FSBO (for sale by owner)


READ ,READ, READ everything and anything you will always learn something. Don't bother with programs or a course there is nothing they can teach you that you can't learn on your own. Some will help you improve but regardless you need the initial foundation of knowledge from trial and error to understand what to do when something goes wrong and what to avoid.

Best of luck !
