I Don't have a pot to P#ss in for down payment for any property

how do i start investing without a pot to p#ss in

Lease options, specifically Cooperative Assignments.

I don’t want to be “that guy” but get a pot to p*ss in first. Seriously, like at least save up a few grand even if you have to get a part time job or sell some stuff that you have laying around your attic unused. Almost any plan of attack you’re going to need a few bucks. And if your credit is screwed up use this time to work on repairing that while you’re learning and saving up cash. Don’t go rushing in right now, this is a patient man’s game.

Rich_in_CT is right. I always say that the worst time to start a business is when you need the money from that business and real estate is a business. I say that because there will come a time when the best interest of your family will conflict with the best interest of the business and you will eat your seed corn and the business will suffer and may fail. Get your life in order first. Also it is kind of a test for your abilities. If you are having trouble budgeting 1 or maybe 2 jobs, what are you going to do when you have 20 mortgages and multiple houses worth of maintenance, insurance, and taxes you have to organize?
