You found the best way to start: this site! Read everything here, read the free articles, read CS and post any questions you may have.
CS has good, basic info. But his acquire and hold philosophy can be a little risky if you don’t have much equity or a slim cash flow in the property. Be careful what you acquire, or it could acquire you.
Check out the book Investing in Real Estate by Eldred and McLean (about $15). It’s a great overview of rei. Also see if there is a reia group in your area; they are great places to learn.
Good luck. Sorry, but north LA is too far. And who knows where the heck Coushatta is (wink).
