Most real estate gurus don’t have any special knowledge or experience in the field.  They make money by selling books, programs, workshops, and seminars.

Dallas, Texas HomeVestors is the nation’s number one home buying franchise and has helped real estate investors purchase 50,000 properties over the years.  The company knows that serious investors don’t listen to real estate gurus because they realize that they can learn everything they need to know through free sources and hard work.  The attorney general of New York has recently sued one of the most famous real estate gurus, Donald Trump, for $40 million.  It is reported that his, “Trump University” has not lived up to the claims that were made.

Patrons of “Trump University” paid large sums of money for workshops and seminars, but many feel like they didn’t get the value they paid for.  Donald Trump may have used his fame to convince potential real estate investors that they were likely to learn secret knowledge, when there really isn’t any secret knowledge that can’t be obtained through public sources.

Those real estate investors who listen to real estate gurus and buy into their programs are likely to achieve similar results.  These gurus, while they may be well educated, don’t have anything of extreme value to share.  Potential real estate investors would be better off learning what they need to know on their own.  This is likely to take years of study, but they will be better off understanding the entire real estate field before jumping into the profession.

While real estate investing isn’t overly complicated, real estate gurus would want potential clients to believe the opposite.  These individuals prey on the uneducated that have dreams of becoming rich.  Those who understand this take the time to become educated in the field and begin their career with this backbone of knowledge.

While it doesn’t hurt to go to a seminar every once in a while, paying thousands of dollars for a seminar is grossly overpriced.  The real estate gurus who put these on depend on these tactics to make their living.  Supporting them in their endeavors is not something that educated real estate investors become a part of.

On the other hand, real estate investors who consider working with an investment company should make sure that it is reputable, as these are not the same as real estate gurus.  Companies that have a proven track record and plenty of solid financial backing can be a great way for entry-level real estate investors to get started in the field.  More than anything, education is the ticket to success in the real estate field.
