I read a lot of blogs and websites…
When I was in the tech industry, I probably kept up with about 200 blogs on regular basis (and I wonder why I worked so many hours?!?). But it was necessary to keep up on the trends, the people, and the strategies that were driving the industry. Real estate is no different, and I’ve found that reading worthwhile material from successful investors is making me a much better investor myself.
The past couple months I’ve come across a number of great real estate websites, blogs, and resources that I hadn’t previously included in my Resources list, but that deserve to be highlighted for other who are looking for great real estate information and insight.
Here are a few of the best:
One of the best real estate forums I’ve found. Run by Steve Cook — real estate investor, mentor, and coach in my hometown (Baltimore) — the site has a ton of great articles, podcasts and knowledgeable forum members.
Another great real estate forum and website. From articles to spreadsheets to blogs to social networking, the site contains great information from hundreds of novice and experienced investors alike.
Steph is a REO wholesaler in Tampa, FL who has been in the real estate business for about a year, and has learned and built her business from the ground up. Very inspirational, and a must read if you’re looking to jump into real estate wholesaling (or real estate in general).
Seth is a flipper in Texas who — while working a day job — also finds the time and energy to do his own rehabs. He provides a lot of detailed info about his projects, but more importantly, provides a lot of great tips for any flippers out there looking to learn the business.
Tom is a flipper from San Antonio who not only churns out beautiful houses, but has a great blog as well. It’s tremendously informative on all aspects of rehab, and uses lots of multi-media to take you right into his projects.
Hey, if you have a real estate blog or website that I haven’t included here or in my resources section, let me know…I’d love to check it out! And don’t hesitate to add REI Startup to your Blogroll (hint, hint)…
