Real estate investing is a passion of mine, along with being a real estate agent. I started Invest Four More to help others learn how to invest in real estate and how to finance investment properties. Along the way I was not expecting to learn so much myself about investing and real estate! I have learned a ton from other blogs, other investors and even from people commenting on the blog or emailing me. There are many other websites and blogs, besides Invest Four more that have great information on investing in real estate.
The top 50 real estate blogs
I have made a list of some great websites and blogs that discuss investing in real estate and have helped me. If I left anyone out, please shoot me an email or leave a comment! It is hard work keeping track of my blog, let alone checking out other blogs. Many of these blogs were created by people I have come to know and trust. These are not in the order of best to worst, each of these blogs has their own unique take on real estate and depending on what you are looking for may be better or worse.

What is the best real estate blog?
I personally think Invest Four More is the best blog out there, but that is because I created the blog. There really is no way to decide what blog is the best because they all offer different things to different investors. I think Bigger Pockets is awesome for its sheer amount of volume, but that can be a downfall to because it is hard to know where to start or who to listen too. My suggestion is to check out some blogs that fit your investing style, see what you like and keep educating yourself! Don’t forget you can still take action investing in real estate while you are learning.
