I am in San Diego County and I have been doing RE Investing or a year now. I have been focusing on Mobile Home Investing (aka Lonnie Scruggs Method) and then Playing with the notes (aka Terry Vaughan).
I have done fairly well.
I have not looked for a single end-all course though. I have read and applied the ideas in them succesfully. Heck I have yet to get a job, and I have to tell you it’s pretty nice to be unemployed in the Sunshine of S. CA, and have no worries :-).
But my advice would be that if you are going to successfull (whatever your particular deffinition of that is) in any business, you have to be able to recognize opprotunities and then act on them.
I don’t see any people who just buy some course and blindly follow it verbatium accomplishing much.
Situations change and you have to know how to react etc.
I beleive that a good understanding of finances, investing, etc. Is esential.
Remember Money is only an idea. A perseption and that is all.
Good luck and happy investing
