I want to get into real estate investing, should I work at an hourly job or a commissions sales job with goals?

Just want someone's opinion on this. It would probably be selling furniture. But you have to meet goals, so I just wanted to know do you think it is better to work and hourly job even if it is less money than a sales job, to have more stability while doing real estate investing, or should I go ahead and sell furniture with goals and its not a big deal? What do you think? Thanks.

I don't think the job matters that much. The most important thing is to get started in real estate. Find a mentor. You can also invest yourself. Even if you don't have a lot of money you can find creative ways to pay for real estate.

It depends on what your skills are. If you're good at sales then commissions are great. If you aren't good then they're not great. Maybe start with the hourly job and move up to the commission job over time. I don't completely see the link between real estate investing and furniture, but good luck.

If you think you want to try real estate investing, give it a try. Find a successful, well known investor in your area and see if his/her company is hiring. If not call and ask if they are looking for unpaid interns. You could do that on a part time basis and find another paying part time job to pay the bills... More

Well, it depends on your skills, experience in that kind of jobs and many other things. But, the first and most important thing will be to ask in some real estate agency about that. I'll give you the link where you can find local real estate agents. Here it is, take a look and good luck.
