    Default woman investing ???

    There are women all over the country who would like to become real estate investors but many don't know how to start. Some lack knowledge; some, aware that they lack the necessary knowledge, in turn lack confidence. Where should women who want to get started investing in real estate begin?
    The internet is a good place for them to turn.
    Women who want to begin investing in real estate can learn some of the basics of investing in real estate by reading educational materials online, and they can develop a familiarity with the topic by reading about current events and trends in the real estate market.
    Lack of knowledge is not the only thing that keeps some women from becoming real estate investors; fear is also a contributing factor, Charita Cadenhead, founder of Bham WIire (Birmingham Women Investing in Real Estate), a group for women interested in real estate investing, said. "They're afraid of losing money, they're afraid of not making the right decisions...and credit issues are also involved." In addition, Cadenhead said, "they don't know how to get started." read more


    i find aritcles such as this sexist...come one...it has nothing to do with whether you are male or female..it has everything to do with knowledge and passion... Potential investors are always afraid of their first investmenst regardless of sex.

    Default !

    In my day, or slightly before, a woman was treated as a mere chattel. She was either included in the sale, along with the fixed floor coverings - or was not - as the case may be.

    I agree King Kong. When I wanted to learn about Property Investing I just started learning - reading mainly... It makes no difference to me who is at our local PIA. I guess the majority are men but I never really noticed.

    I do like meeting up with other women who are investors though - thats more for a social reason, rather than thinking I need separate learning opportunities.

    Why would I need extra hand holding just because I'm female? I got taught by my mother very early on that its a mans world, get used to it, and then use your womenly wiles to get what you want! LOL ;-)
