Advice for 20yr old and under?

1 Reply

-Basic background or what I’ve been doing:

Using this quarantine days and summer vacation to mainly read books and learn more about real estate.


I have a summer job that will pay me 1k by end of august. Run a side gig/business that profits $800 a month. I’m looking to get total of 20k saved up for my first deal at around 20 or 21 years old. Currently 17.


- Question:

What kind of advice would you give to yourself if you were in your early 20s and were looking to start investing in real estate early in your career? Maybe some advice that can help me save some time or spend my time more wisely?

Thanks for reading this, appreciate it.

Also, first day using the BiggerPockets app 🤞💙

@Aang Sherpa , It's awesome that you have found a way to financial freedom so early in your life!

here is what I would do if I was in your situation:

1) Read Rich Dad Poor Dad

2) Listen to every single Bigger Pockets Real Estate Podcast (The main one with Brandon Turner and David Green)

3) Take up an internship with a real estate investor or a property management company to learn more. Don't expect them to pay, the intention is to learn not to earn money (if that's possible for you).
