Any Investor whether it be real estate, stock market, etc. needs to visit this site before jumping into the world of investing. It can get quite hairy at times. If you are scared now? you are in for quite a ride. Real Estate investing isn`t all its cracked up to be for A LOT of people. Most jump into it because of the success stories, having no real clue what they are doing out there thinking that its fool proof...There are many fools in Real Estate.
One quick statement...Those who invest don`t become wealthy with the "low risk" investments. High risk pays high dividends! Low risk pays a salary!
You can`t be scared to loose. Sometimes putting it "ALL" on the table makes you work that much harder to become successful and in turn will make you SUCCESSFUL! If nothing is on the line, you have nothing to loose and 9 times out of ten...YOU GAIN NOTHING!
