How do you start investing in real estate?

Invest in your own knowledge.

If I learned something as I get older is that investing in knowledge isn't always costly .

The most valuable investment is time....Make the time to read go to courthouses drive around knowing the areas you want to invest in 

Find someone who knows more than you do.

  Places like www.meetup.com is usually a good place to meet and learn from other investors. 

Here is my favorite place to meet other investors on line  and is where we stay connected as a group.

Getting money to get started

Someone with good credit and good income can borrow down payment funds. From lenders like.

www.Bestegg.com

www.Prosper.com


These sources have fees and usually higher rates but are an easy way to get quick start up Cash. I have personally borrowed fromthem.   

Expect problems along the way.

Running a holiday sale or weekly special? Definitely promote it here to get customers excited about getting a sweet deal.

Don't expect to get rich quick.

Have you opened a new location, redesigned your shop, or added a new product or service? Don't keep it to yourself, let folks know.

Get started.

Customers have questions, you have answers. Display the most frequently asked questions, so everybody benefits.
