What kind of investor do you want to be? This is critical for your success in real estate. If you don’t like what you’re doing, it won’t work for you. Do you want to focus on cashflow or long-term wealth or both? A lot depends on how much cash and time you have to invest in this endeavor. In the beginning people with little money start bird-dogging (or driving for $$.) Bird-dogging involves driving around and finding distressed properties for other investors. At the other end of the spectrum, if you have money, there’s no limit to what you can do in real estate investing. I cover the full range of options in my book, Real Estate Investing for Beginners: finding your best path to success. It’s available on Amazon. I’d start there and find out what you want to do. The idea is to get in and get your feet wet. One of the options I describe will probably resonate with you. Go after that one. As your success grows, look into other options.
