New investors ask how to start. Normally it takes nothing more than a decision and then some action. Similar to starting this blog.
The first step does not have to be big. It just has to happen.
I started this blog so that I could offer some free advice to individuals who are looking to invest in real estate. For the British in the room I am talking about investing in property; BTL mostly. For the non-British BTL means Buy To Let. We will cover other terms and what they mean later. If something is not clear just ask.
I have direct experience with investing in the US and the UK. A fair bit over 20 years of experience in the US and about half that in the UK. I have property spread over 11 time zones so investing at a distance is clearly something we can discuss.
I prefer to run this as a Question and Answer session so please submit questions. Until there is a critical mass I will be pulling questions that I have addressed from mailing lists and other forums as is necessary.
