Now I know what your going to say, the title of this article is silly or does not make sense and I would normally agree with you but let me help you understand where I am coming from. I consider myself still fairly new in the real estate game but I have learned a lot, seen a lot and have sold a lot. I have been blessed to be in the position I’m in and have learned the business from the inside out as most people don’t get this type of education as you might call it.
Many people looking to get into real estate investing have either seen the late night infomercial, went to a seminar, seen a post on Facebook or heard a radio commercial where someone learned how to do this business and within a short time making a six figure income. My friends, I hate to be the one to tell you but if it was that easy we would all be doing it. You see, their goal is to wow you with all the hype and pictures of exotic cars and stacks of cash all to get you to buy into their products that make them rich, not you. Let me say that there are some courses and products out there that are cost effective and worth the money. What happens is the new investor buys into this program and then finds themselves with no real direction and quickly gets confused and frustrated.
So where should someone start who wants to get started with real estate investing? Start with your local real estate investment club. There you should find and meet other investors who are actually doing what you want to be doing. Also when getting started you should keep your profit expectations realistic for starters. Having big goals and dream is key but you have to start out somewhere and that is the point for the title of this article. I have a few local connections who have not been in real estate only but a short time and they have brought me a few properties where I have purchased them and they made a few thousand for just finding me the deal and that’s it. I encourage you to take action and get started today.
