Top 5 Helpful Sites for Real Estate Investors
Whether you’re looking to build your very own real estate empire, or you’d just like to make a little extra money on the side by investing in some property, it’s important that you have the right resources at your disposal. If you’re new to the world of real estate, you undoubtedly have a lot of questions. I know I did and still have. What is OPM? What’s the difference between a traditional loan and a hard money loan? What are the hottest cities for investing right now? Would this property be better for flipping, or renting? What scams should I look out for?
With so much jargon and misinformation out there, not to mention rapidly fluctuating markets, it’s easy to quickly get lost in the weeds. But, don’t worry, there is an infinite wellspring of useful and readily available real estate info on the internet, it’s just a matter of knowing where to look. So to help you along, we’ve compiled a list of 5 top blogs and websites for learning about investing in real estate:
With their extensive dictionary of relevant real estate terms, Investopedia is a great place to get started with learning the basics of the industry. Often used by seasoned professionals as a helpful refresher, this easy to navigate site provides investment news, tutorials and even an array of helpful investment calculators.
This is my personal favorite. The excellent writers and bloggers who contribute to this site each week alone are enough to make biggerpockets.com a top site for those interested in getting into the business. But, where this site really shines is in the forums, where you’ll find a plethora of avid investors and real estate professionals of every stripe weighing in on virtually every real estate topic you could imagine and then some.
Looking to get into property flipping? On this helpful blog, professional house flipper J. Scott shares his personal adventures in the field, as well as articles on a wide range of real estate-related topics. He’ll also point you to a ton of instructive podcasts and videos oriented toward helping people find success in the industry.
More a service industry news site than an instructive real estate blog, DS News will help you stay abreast of major trends and developments in the mortgage and real estate industry. If you’re trying to break into the business, it’s important to stay up on all the latest investment news, and this slick and searchable site will help you stay in the loop.
Although they bill themselves as “the premiere real estate education company in the country,” you don’t have to sign up for their training classes and coaching sessions to take advantage of their blog, where you’ll find a wealth of useful (and free) information on a broad assortment of real estate trends and topics.
We hope you find these sites helpful, but we encourage you to look around. It is difficult to say that one resource is better than another, because they all cater to different needs and niches. It really comes down to what you like, and what you’re looking to get out of the real estate industry. So keep educating
yourself and building your library of online resources. The more you dig, read, and learn, the better prepared you’ll be for the ups and downs of real estate investing.
