Real Estate for Dummies

6 Replies

Hello:) My name Is Kavosa....or is it already indicated automatically somewhere around my profile picture..oh well. I am new to Bigger Pockets and excited to be here!! I am Kenyan, born and bred. I know nothing about real estate and my interest is driven by the fact that I just love houses. Kenya is undergoing a serious construction boom and I want to get in on it. I just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy which has motivated me to be more pro-active in order to provide a better future for him. I have a degree in International Relations and I am about to finish a degree in Law. I know how to be in a classroom but not the real world. Nairobi, my hometown,is expensive and I want to generate revenue so that I don't have to worry about my families welfare. I hope to create great networks and to have a wonderful experience.

I also would have had learned so much more. You made a great decision to join. Go to the tab at the top "Education", then to "Podcast", there is a wealth of info there. Good Luck!
