I attended a free real estate seminar presented by a representative of the Robert Allen Institute the other night.
Before I get into details, Real Estate investing (flipping, rehabbing, etc.) is something I've been interested in and thinking about getting involved in for the last year or so. I've been doing research about it in my spare time the last six months or so
I had no idea what to expect at the seminar. It was two hours - first 10 minutes and final 15 minutes were a hard sell for you to take their education class that costs close to $3K. Middle 90 minutes were interesting and informative.
I didn't sign up for the course but was wondering if anyone ever has. If so, what did you get out of it? Have you made some $$ following the course? Was it a ripoff?
Also, any other advise about getting started in real estate investing would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for replies.
