I’ve been thinking about investing in real estate for a couple of years now. I’m at the point now where I’ve decided to do something about it. I have read a lot of books on the creative financing and general real estate buying and selling. I want to get in the market of pre/forclosures and section 8 housing. My credit is ok but I have no money in the bank. I know that real estate is a slow process. I just want to make a little cash soon so i can go to school to get my real estate licence. Do I need a licence to buy and sell? I found 2 REICs in my area and plan on going to their next meeting. Any other suggestions. Any info anyone has is greatly appreciated.
