“I don’t have any experience. How can I start investing in California real estate?”
“Well, not like me,” I joked. “The California real estate market is unique. First, you need to do your research. Then, you need to decide where you want to invest.”

But I couldn’t even fathom just how fast or competitive the California market was. For years, I struggled to even break-in.
Years later, I know what I should have done. Here’s everything I’ve learned about the best places to invest in real estate in California.
