And so it is for beginners in real estate investment. Ask for help, and you shall receive tons of videos! If you are looking at the introduction to ideas, good videos are a great way to get started – they are easy to consume, engaging and concise.
But it is a task to sift through hundreds of videos and see which might be of value to you. So, we have chosen seven helpful property investment videos and listed them here for you. These will provide an excellent introduction to the space and a starting point for your search for deeper engagements in this area.
This video is a great entry point for someone excited about property investment and contemplating taking the plunge. This TEDx talk by British property investor, Dan Buchan, gives the viewer a 10k feet view of this space. He talks about his journey from “zero- to 28-year-old property millionaire”. It will be exciting for a beginner to learn how he started with odd jobs and then deep dive into the real estate arena as he wanted to take control over his financial future. The numbers he uses to stress his points may be specific to the UK, but the concepts he talks about are universal.
This video is a dive from the previous one as it takes you straight to a real estate investment case study. Australian content creator, Sanjna, takes you through the nitty-gritty of making her first property investment. In this no-frill video, Sanjna talks about how, as she was new to real estate investing, she took help from suitable quarters. She keeps her narration essential and jargon-free, making it very easy to follow. The best parts of the video come at the end, where Sanjna gives the complete break-up of the costs involved and where she shares important learnings from her experience. The numbers are relevant to her area, but the cost heads can be a great guiding point when you do your research.
