Many people don’t want to invest in Real Estate because of the three T’S, Tenants,
Toilets & Termites, and I understand completely. But there are other ways to get
into Real Estate without involving yourself. Many new companies are now opening up investing
opportunities for everyone like crowdfunding.
What is crowdfunding ? It’s the practice of funding a project or venture by raising
small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via online. So you
can invest your money without being involved, in other words a passive investor
where you sit back and collect, now I’m not endorsing crowdfunding, you have to do
your due diligence before investing in any of these projects.

When I started learning about real estate investing in 2007 I was basically lost in the
terminology of investing, with words like ROI, CAP RATE, CASH ON CASH RETURN.

Youtube, & other social media sites that are everywhere we look. But for me the
easiest way to learn was being with like-minded individuals that have the same goal
Which means network, network & more networking, we can take many classes but
being around the people that are doing it, that is the best education, you are learning
on the job.
For those who are new, look at your local meetup.com site and type in Real Estate
and you will see hundred’s of clubs you can join.
