Real Estate Classes

6 Replies

I wanted to get some feedback. One of the Local REI'S is offering an educational program called "CORE" that seems very interesting. From the information provided, it seems to be very all-encompasing. The issue is that the cost for the program is $2,000.00.

Does anyone have any knowledge of this program or thoughts about signing up for a program like this?

Thanks

@Ray Wicker , despite the nearly ubiquitous opposition I see on BP about any paid for real estate education, I've found value in it in my own experience. I've never "jumped in and figured out the details later" in my investments. I've made decisions based on strategies that I understood and implemented to achieve results that I had reasons to expect.

That's not a blanket endorsement of paid for programs and education. I would seek others, like you are doing here, who have experience with the training and get their feed back on the training's effectiveness and value? Like anything else, it will take a bit of homework to decide what training is worth your money.

Yes, everything you need to know and mentors can be found here on BP, but there is no structured course with a start and finish date. Those things are of value to me and they can be valuable to many investors.

Thanks for your input Robert

Personally, I would focus on exhausting my free education resources while devoting time networking locally and asking questions here. That's just me though. Either way, best of luck to you.

Loren,

I appreciate your opinion

Locate and attend 3 different local REIA club meetings great place to meet people gather resources and info. Here you will meet wholesalers who provide deals and all the cash buyers (rehabbers) you will need.

You might consider Niche or Specialized Housing like student housing. Rents can be 2-4 times more. Remember you don't have to own a property to control it.
