Hi Fishes - real estate investing newbie here. My level of knowledge is essentially at the rich dad / poor dad level. Any recommendations for best books to read / best YouTube channels to follow to get deeper knowledge? If it helps, I live and hence will probably invest in the NY/NJ area… TYIA!

I have over 12 years in B2B sales/sales management experience along with a graduate degree. I am wanting to shift gears and I am at a point where I can invest time in myself to learn through practical experience. The new industry I am wanting to pursue is real estate investment. I have read all the books but want some hands on experience on the property management side. How could I best leverage my skills for a role in this, and what should my expectations be for negotiation in compensation?

Are their any good books, sites, materials for beginners to real estate investing?

For those that invested in real estate rentals, how did you systematically approach finding a good property? Realized most of my stock investments was just gambling and I don’t want to gamble on a RE investment. Read a few books but none of them go into how to actually find a good deal/city.

For any of you real estate investors, what tools or sources did you learn from when getting started. Can’t find a mentor currently so want to find some highly recommended books or videos.

My hope is to buy and rent out a apartment while also owning a house and house hacking that by renting part of it out.
