But a friend of mine, Brandon Turner, is part of the largest real estate investing website out there (BiggerPockets.com), has been investing in real estate for years, and really is a great teacher and communicator.

So, I figured who better to ask some questions to.

In the interview below I ask him a series of questions that I am curious about as a wannabe investor and that are pretty common questions that beginners typically wonder about.

  • What type of real estate investing do you recommend to beginners and why?
  • What made you take the leap into REI?
  • Answer this question once and for all – can you invest in a property with no money down?
  • When looking for good properties, are there any rules of thumb that you follow to identify a good investment property?
  • With there being so many real estate investors out there, do new investors have a chance to snatch up a winning property?
  • How does a new investor minimize risk?
  • Do you recommend that new investors use a property manager?
  • If you were talking to your younger self – say right when you started- what books, resources, would you recommend?
