The internet is full of great information on every aspect of real estate investment. Some of the best advice out there can often be found in blogs rather than in the offices of financial advisers. When investing in real estate, it is essential that you do your research, so below is our pick of the top ten real estate blogs online to help you do just that.
Bigger Pockets is a social network, information hub and marketplace for real estate investors. Their blog has a wealth of information in the form of articles, podcasts, webinars and videos, all aimed at helping investors make the best decisions when it comes to real estate.
Originally a radio show, The Real Estate Guys is run by Robert Helms and Russell Gray, both real estate experts with over two decades of experience in finance. The site features useful articles on everything from investing abroad to basic investment approaches, covering all bases in terms of experience level.
Though not specifically about real estate, Investor Guide is a useful tool for assessing the financial landscape, and it features a helpful real estate category. As a larger-scale site, Investor Guide has the benefit of global scope and access to information that may not be available to the normal blogger.
Epic Real Estate is a property investment education blog that aims to explain the complicated real estate nomenclature to the general public. Its founder Matt is a real estate professional of thirteen years whose goal is to help others earn passive income from property.
Another general investment site, NuWire is dedicated to providing information to investors in order to help them achieve the best possible returns. Their real estate section is comprehensive and insightful, and their “How To” section is extremely useful – see, for instance, this article on retirement strategies.
A Student Of The Real Estate Game is a blog run by Joe Stampone, an acquisitions manager for a private investment firm in New York. Joe’s story started only seven years ago, going from unemployed to a real estate professional in no time at all. In his blog he takes you through the steps and shows you how he did it.
CRE Tech is a site dedicated to the real estate industry’s relationship with technology. Though the focus is on commercial real estate, CRE Tech looks at the range of impacts technology can have on the property market; their investment section is especially useful for assessing the various tech options available to property investors.
Written by Bill McBride, Calculated Risk is a blog about finance and investment on a large scale, but often with a focus on real estate. The blog is a little more in-depth than some of the others listed, aimed at those who already know something about the investment market, but the information is extremely valuable if you know what you’re looking for.
RE Tipster is another blog aimed at helping people achieve extra income via real estate investing. The site allows you to submit a question to the resident property expert, Seth Williams, and it features a resources page to help people get started in the property investment market.
More of a coaching and community site, CRE Online aims to teach normal people about the ins and outs of property investment. The site has a strong following and features useful articles on every step of the investment process, as well as insightful tips on making the best choices in real estate – see, for example, this article on finding undervalued properties.
