Getting started in real estate investing.

Decide which kind of investor you want to be (SFR, Commercial, Land, Tax Liens, Passive, HML, Multi-Family, Notes, Fix & Flip, Buy & Hold, "Subject To", apartments, duplexes, assisted living, REOs, Foreclosures, Short Sales), etc. Decide how much money you have access to, & the zip codes, city or state you want to focus on. That will determine the next step. Outline where you want to be in five years. Put it all in writing. Start working your plan. There are plenty of people around to help you each step of the way.

I’m a local investor and I’d love to help any way I can. What are you looking to get into? Message me if you have any questions.

Hi Jake. Fairly new here. Just bought my first duplex which I will close on next week. Start listening to the podcasts and read some of the guides on the sites. It’s a great way to start getting ideas and learning the lingo.
