im 24yrs old interested in getting into real estate. I live in tampa,fl i see theres plenty of opportunity here but i have no credit which is bad im very motivated to do whatever it takes to get started...CAN ANYONE HELP??? I will have alot of ????s. I have plenty of work history thats probably the only plus side i think. So let me know what to long would it take to build credit for 1st buy

You have no credit history...ok. Do you have any capital? Having no credit is actually much easier to overcome than having bad credit! Again, do you have any capital? What are your goals? What interests you about REI? Do you have a job? Is it stable? Do you have a good salary?

There are options.   Don't focus on what you don't have.  Let's leverage what you do have!

I have family in the area and always see tons going on with property management and vacation rentals there.  Might not be your ultimate goal but it would be a way to get your foot in the door and start to understand the market a bit there if you go to work for one of them or start your own company and a decent way to build some capital at the same time.
