Rookie Reply: You DON'T Need Experience to Invest in Real Estate
Before you invest in real estate, everything can seem new and confusing. Bidding on houses, renovation budgets, finding tenants—these are all skill sets you must acquire to become a financially independent real estate investor. But that doesn’t mean you need to be a pro before buying your first property. Just ask Brittany Arnason, AKA InvestorGirlBritt, the Canadian real estate superstar who started BRRRR-ing her way to wealth at just eighteen.
We brought Britt onto the show to help us dive deeper into a question we received on the Real Estate Rookie Facebook Group. This question came from JP, asking: How do you network and partner with more experienced investors when you feel you have nothing to add value?
Most investors never feel like they know enough, and this is especially true if you’ve never done a deal before. But, Britt may serve as the perfect person to share her experience with JP, as she went from knowing nothing about real estate to becoming a multi-million dollar commercial investor all before the age of thirty!
If you want Ashley and Tony to answer a real estate question, you can post in the Real Estate Rookie Facebook Group! Or, call us at the Rookie Request Line (1-888-5-ROOKIE).
