Volunteering to Learn

1 Reply


I’m new to BP and I’m interested in learning more about rental properties. My goal is to eventually own and manage my own rentals.

I have a full time job but I’m looking to volunteer or part time at property management company to gain more knowledge.

Is this a good route? What other options are there?

Appreciate all your help!

1) real estate agent/appraiser

2) contractor

3) property management

4) mortgage broker

property management you can learn the easiest yourself with podcasts and cash flow analysis 

as well as mortgage broker

The first 2 you need some hands on knowledge looking at homes, valuing homes, contracts and remodeling basics..

You never mentioned which area you are from
