I just recently graduated, and am about to start a job as a rotational field engineer in oil and gas. My schedule is 2 weeks on and 1 week off. I’m looking to monetize my off time, and am curious as to how I should go about this in real estate. I will be living with my parents and the goal is to save over half my pay – around 35k. Should I work towards my real estate license, or just continue to save to hopefully buy a rental home/duplex and go from there? Is there any benefit from a license if I’m not looking to become a licensed agent? If not, should I just focus on research through books and other advice people have to offer?
