Hello everyone, just want to say I love this website!!!! I was given an introduction on real estate investing a few months back, and decided to load up on books to become more knowledgeable about REI, attending some seminars that wanted me to pay ridiculous fees to learn the business , And while the industry is little foreign to me and nothing in my professional background relates I have discovered this undeniable passion for it.So my questions is to the REI's in the business, what are some serious recommendations for anyone that wants to be engage in this business.

Hi @Catoria Eubanks ,

I recommend you figure out what aspect of real estate you wish to invest in. That can be as easy as deciding on your strategy. Are you buying to hold and cash flow, fix and flip, or wholesale? That will help figure out what types of properties you want to invest in. 

I recommend you start with the end in mind. What you do wish to earn, and from there you can do the math backwards to see what kind of properties fit that mold. 

Good luck!
