New to the business in Madison, AL

After a good deal of thinking and studying, I've decided to take the plunge into real estate investing. I'd like to start with wholesaling and eventually work my way into mobile homes, pre-foreclosures, single family home rentals, etc. I don't have a ton of capital, but it's my understanding that wholesaling is a low capital strategy that is effective in building capital. Any insight or advice from anyone experienced in this business is welcome and appreciated.

Hello @Joseph Compton and let me be the first to welcome you to Bigger Pockets. BP is a great place for all things real estate! It offers free online videos and educational courses and has it's own podcast in itunes. BP also allows you to post blogs and share ideas with other investors. You came to the right place and I wish you all the best. 

Hi Joseph, Welcome to BP. I am an investor in the Huntsville, AL area. There is a ton of information on here to help you get started. Wholesaling is low capital strategy but it can require a lot of time. There is a monthly REIA that I would recommend you attend just meet other wholesalers in the area.
