If you consider that corporate training classes run between $400 and $800 per student per day, this is way expensive. That’s usually a sign that its not a good investment. Corp training classes are a lot more expensive than college courses, but at the end of the class you can do what they have taught and the exercises demonstrate some grasp of the subject.
Affordable property takes WORK to find and obtain. There are a lot of “investors” out looking for the same thing, which makes getting these properties even more work.
Depending on where you are and what your return on investment goals are, you may have to invest in a part of the country that better matches your goals. For example, if you want to buy rental property that provides income each month out of the gate, and you only want to put down 20%, you eliminate most properties in places like CA, Phoenix and so on.
