The real estate section at the bookstore has a wealth of paperback books for less than $20. Buy five of them for less than a hundred bucks. Read them all five times.
While you read the first time underline all the best stuff with a red pen.
When you read the second time SLLLOOOOOOWWWWW DDDDOOOOOWWWWWNNNN AT ALL THE RED PARTS.
If you dont understand that passage completely, read it again and again and again. Draw diagrams if you have to.
When you are finished you will have a good undestanding of several possible strategies.
Pick One That you like the best and GO FOR IT!
I retired from my J-O-B in 3 years investing in real estate. Trust me it works!
