I am currently a RE agrent and I want to starting investing in properties. The problem is I don’t know where to begin. Are there any books or courses that can help get me started?

I would do my due dilligence before I buy a really expensive course…I’ve mentioned here before…I spent 2000 dollars on a course…Only later to find the same info and more in a 3 dollar book… is a good site to check…It has reviews from Buyers and such…good site to check before spending a lot…

My personal advice, in terms of courses, would be the following:

Carleton Sheets NMD… you can pick up a copy off Ebay for $50 bucks or so. This is probably REI 101… His focus is mainly buy and holding properties… and its not the most sophisticated thing out there, and some of his techniques are stretching it a bit… but it’s a good foundation to build on.

Ron Legrand’s Cashflow System is also a great start for the basics of Quick Turning (buy, fix up sell, owner finance and sell, lease/option or option) etc. Should be able to pick all 3 volumes up for about $400 on Ebay.

There are hundreds of courses out there, obviously, by various authors and “gurus”… Some good, some bad… some mediocre. Various folks that post here have written books or courses.

Personally I’ve found Legrand’s stuff pretty good and it has been the backbone of most of my educational material to date. Not only because its good, but because it can be picked up on EBAY relatively cheaply.
