I have been reading for 2 years, yet I have not started investing due to the lack of knowledge of one method. I am a college student with a side job with little money and credit, so I am trying to figure the best approach to start investing right away - Purchasing tax deeds seems to be my best bet that requires little money. I have been tempted to buy John Beck’s course, but are there any other books on this topic that anyboby can suggest?
I would greatly appreciate any advice considering my situation.
Thank you,

Hi, Where in Florida are you located? I’m about an hour north of West Palm.

I’m a college student, as well, and I own the John Beck course. If you live close enough to me, I’ll lend it to you.

Personally, I find it to be very interesting information but DEFINATELY not something to get into with little money. It’s more of a way to increase your wealth, after you have gained some RE income. Unfortunately, we’re in the worst state for tax sales as well. That’s not too much of a problem, as the course explains how to purchase certificates from other states.

Right now, I’m in the process of flipping contracts. I’ve found it to be the easiest way to go, since there is VERY little cash outlay (if any). If you would like any insight on this, send me an email and I would be happy to help you.

For the price, John Beck’s “Free and Clear” is a great bargain. Florida has an interesting system, but it may be better for you to try some other state if you are starting with little money. His course has a description of how things work in every state.

There used to be a book just on tax lien investing in FL. Try calling Jimmie Napier in Chipley, FL, for the reference. I think he holds the publishing rights to that book.
