Someone posted recently (like 1-2 days ago) with some book recommendations. I think it was specifically about rental properties

I strongly recommend the following in order for newbies:
YouTube-meet Kevin, graham Stephen
Online-bigger pockets

Happy to chat about getting started, it’s not as difficult as it seems

Damn good for you guys. I’m 25 and wondering if I’ll ever be able to afford a house of my own let alone property to rent out

For any residential property under 5 units it’s possible to do less than 20%. You be a competitive offer, but you can do it. I have a colleague who bought his last 7 investment properties with 10-15% down on conventional fixed rate loans
