Over the many years that we've been serving real estate investors, one of the most asked questions on our site has been, "How Do I Get Started in Real Estate Investing?"
People from all over the world have been coming to BiggerPockets to find the answer to that question. While some might lead you to believe that there is a simple answer that works for everyone, that simply isn't the case. We've built this course to help simplify the process of figuring out how YOU can get started.
Of course, this course is not an all-encompassing "how-to" manual about every aspect of real estate investing, but a broad-stroke overview of the best ways to start down your path to financial freedom through real estate investments.

More about me: I bought my first house at 21 years old, fixed it up, and sold it for a small profit. Although my original plan was to use the money to backpack around Europe, I ended up using the money instead to pay for my dream wedding with my favorite girl. Rather than Europe, I discovered myself and my future.
I ended up doing a lot more real estate investing, gaining dozens of rental properties over the next few years, partnering with different folks to find ways to invest in real estate without using my own cash by creating win-win solutions for others. It's worked out really well and I continue to buy and rent properties.
