    Hey Brandon, I hear all about no money down or low money down to get into real estate investing, but what I have actually found is no one ever talks about how much it is to get your LLC started, to get your phone system in place, to set up a PO Box , so my question is what is the real price to start real estate investing? Are you telling me I can start without any of these things in place? I hope I am not coming across negative b/c I am super pumped of the opportunity REO has to offer but never hear about the "TRUE" cost to start!

    Good advice, but it doesn't do you a whole lot of good when there aren't any deals in your market lol. We need another correction.

    Whatever you saying in this video is looks to me is like story time. The real life is not true. When I was going to buy my first house I was 22 years old. The house I find praise was $178,000 dollars that time, now is over million ( it was in Los feliz area, franklin and New Hampshire ) they didn't sale to me,the reason they told me I'm not coalified, why? Because I have no record, no credit card and I was living with my parents even rent is not on my name or utilities but I had down payment for 20% which is normally they asking. Even I offer them 30% down payment still not coalified with $25,000 yearly income.
    Now, life is go 5 time more expensive then 30 years ago. Back then rents are in good area was $730.00 now same area is $2,000 or more.
    My question is how you buy units, even single family home with no many down at Hollywood area and how much is your yearly income? Or do you have a job?

    Dont understand one part. Even though u hustled to get the 200,000$ property down to 150,000$, doesnt mean you dont have to still pay a down-payment for it, no? So how is that "didn't pay any money for it"?

    absolutely invaluable information. do, do, do and do more everyday is the key. The welling of self pride becomes addictive just by doing 'something' in the direction of your goals. Thanks BiggerPockets, you guys are incredible!
