Jumping into Real Estate!!

1 Reply

Hello everyone i am Donasiyano (Don). I am a soon to be high school graduate, and I live in Northern Colorado Springs. I have invested a lot of time looking into future careers and options but none of them really hit home like Real Estate. I helped a friend flip his first property and loved every moment of it. I am a very hard worker, I love working for myself, and I hate the idea of a 9-5. Real estate investing is the best path for me.

Although I am too young to buy my own property I'd love to jump in a gain that crucial hands on experience that no book can supply.

If you are a Investor please comment on this post and tell me your thoughts about me. I do not look to profit and make money, but simply want to better understand Real Estate. I think I can build an amazing relationship with a investor not just because I can save them time and money, but because I am dedicated and so eager to learn. Like I said before I am a hard worker, so If you are in my area and looking for a helping hand I am up for the challenge.

Hey Don! Welcome to B/P.  This is a great place to meet investors and learn.  I used to invest in the Denver area.  I never got into the Springs but I always wanted too.  I think most here have been bitten by the R/E bug.

1. Go to the meetups in your area- listen and learn and you will start meeting real active investors.  From there you can help them out with menial tasks and hopefully they will give you some good knowledge.

2. Join a mastermind group ( or start one)- find others in your shoes, at school or on this site. I am always surprised at how young some people are here talking about getting into investing.  You are not the only one.  Find 5 or so others and start meeting and learning from each other.

Good Luck and welcome to the party!
