Real estate investing education for free

Every experienced real estate investor understands that to succeed in property investing you need to study special texts, learn different investing techniques and never stop searching for new information.
But what if you just recently decided to start investing?

You would like to improve your financial situation and build serious wealth using the oldest, most reliable form of investment on earth but have no idea where to start. Maybe you think it's a good idea to attend a "super" seminar for $10 000. Will it be just a plain waste of money and time? What if at the end you decide that fixing toilets and arguing with tenants is not your favorite kind of hobby and would rather do something else? Great, but you just lost a valuable time and money in the process by learning something that you will never really use in your life.

I have some very good news for you. You can start learning different ways of real estate investing completely for free by using many valuable Internet resources described below. In most cases the information presented is completely free, but in some instances you will have to provide your e-mail address.

One of the easiest and safest ways to start gaining real estate investment experience and some spare cash for your future deals is by bird-dogging, or in other words, providing qualified leads to more accomplished investors. You don't need money or good credit to start as a bird-dog and you will learn a lot working with real investors and real deals.

The Real Estate Jobber Course written by Barry Grimes is devoted exclusively to all aspects of real estate bird-dogging. It includes five massive volumes with over 1,000 pages of material. Download the first volume for free by clicking here:

The Lease Option (Lease Purchase, Rent To Own) method of real estate investing also doesn't need a large amount of initial cash investment and good credit ratings. It also can be done in your spare time without excessive risks, but this technique is more involved from the procedural point of view and needs a higher level of knowledge and experience than bird-dogging.

Several years ago two famous real estate authors Peter Conti and David Finkel released a very practical and informative book called "How To Create Multiple Streams of Income Buying Homes in Nice Areas With Nothing Down!" devoted mostly to the Lease Option method acquiring and controlling real estate without actually buying it. You can buy this book in your bookstore for about $20.00, but why would you want to do that when you can get this book for free from the author's web site at:

Arguably one of the most profitable ways of property investing is buying foreclosures or pre-foreclosures. A foreclosure or distressed sale begins when the owner stops making mortgage payments. Thousands of investors make a business out of buying foreclosures for profit. The main problem here is that you have to know what are you doing if you want to avoid big and costly problems.

To download the popular book "How to Buy Foreclosures", plus an additional book which will help you to fix all your credit problems, just trade your email address here:

Many homeowners with little or no equity at all have big difficulties selling their property because they have to come up with additional cash to pay for real estate agents' sales commission and so they are ready give up this property for free. If an investor takes this property without qualifying for the new mortgage and continues to pay the original owner's mortgage payments he is taking this property "subject to existing financing". Some lucrative deals could be done here.

Again, instead of buying the very informative book by Bill Gatten called "No Down! No New Loan!" in the bookstore, download the electronic version of the book for free from the author's web site at:

You can make hundreds of thousands of dollars by buying a run-down house at the right price, using the correct finance structure, fix it up for the least possible cost and then sell it for maximum profit, or hold and use the newfound equity to help fund your next property.

To read several free chapters from the bestselling book "Fixer Upper Profits" by Sal Vannutini please visit this web site:

I barely scratched the surface here. If you are persistent enough, you can find much more free valuable real estate investing educational materials, including more free books, reports, real estate forms and even free audio and video presentations. Fire up your computer and start searching.

Here are two more links that you will find very helpful:

The first link is an internet forum called "Links to every free real estate ebook known to man" belonging to the author of the best-selling book "Magic Bullets In Real Estate" by Dan Auito.

By following this second link you will find a page where many other free real estate investing books, courses, reports and audio recordings are listed.

The real estate industry has created more millionaires than any other area of business; so don't let the lack of money stop you from learning this enormously profitable way of life.

Good luck!
