Depends on what you are interested in within RE. Wholesaling, Buy - Rehab - Sell as a Turnkey Provider, Buy and Hold for Cashflow or Passive Investing in MFH syndications, etc.
I would suggest to start with biggerpockets.com, they have a huge blog section and user forum, lots of book suggestions on their library, syndicationschool.com by Joe Fairless, he has a long running podcast, also checkout Real Estate Guys podcast.

Question for my fellow fish, thinking about buying a new home and putting 10% down instead of 20%. Only because I want to have some extra money laying around for new home items I’ll need. Then after 3-4 months of PMI my plan is to call and drop the other 10% in a big payment to remove PMI. Is this something I can do? I also think if I do 10% down instead of 20% I can get a lower rate as a first time home buyer.
