5 Blogs You Need To Visit Today-Especially #5

Join Our RentalRookie Community (It's Free)

One of the crucial things I've learned while investing in real estate is that I am constantly learning.  There's always something new to learn, and in the world of real estate investing, realistically my husband and I are really still in the early stages.  Just because we have bought some properties and have been successfully earning cash flow each month for the last couple of years doesn't mean we know it all.

One of the ways I keep learning is by reading other blogs in this field, especially in the buy and hold niche.  There are a plethora of great bloggers out there offering awesome content. Along with the great blogs, the fact is that there are a ton of bad blogs.  It takes time to sort through the good and the bad and to find ones that really do seem to offer great content.

Today, I want to share with you 5 sites that I frequently visit in hopes that you will not have to waste time going through the good, the bad, and the ugly of real estate blogs.  4 out of 5 of these blogs focus solely on investing the world of real estate.   The fifth blog that I'm adding to this list I feel focuses on one of the inspirations for many of us who invest in real estate...passive income.  Pat Flynn and Smart Passive Income has been such an inspiration and motivation for my husband and I when it comes to planning for our future.  He offers tons of advice, information, and guidance on the idea of living off of passive income so you can have the life you truly want!


What do I look for?


Epic Content.  This is where the real value of a blog exists. They could have sweet graphics and giveaways; however, if the content they're writing stinks, then what's the point of going there. I look for good actionable advice, proof in numbers of what they are doing & advice that they can back from their own experience. These things can help me continue to learn in the world of investing.



Easy Design.  When I get to a website I can easily tell in the first 5 seconds whether or not the blogger has put considerable thought into making their site easy to navigate.  The thing I hate the most is getting to a website where I need a manual in order to get around.  Sites need to be visibly clean, easy to navigate, and not inundated with ads and banners.



So.... in effort to save you time, check out these sites below to find more great content in the field of real estate investing!
