I'm currently 18 years old and am going to UTK next year. I have a good friend who is talking all about buying realestate with no money down. He says that there are so many ways to acquire realestate with no money down. He also reads lots of books by guys such as Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad) and others. I say he's full of BS and those books are just schemes so the authors can make profit. If it's too good to be true...then it most likely is....Can anybody shed some light on the realestate business so I can (possibly) prove him wrong. My dad is a residentail house appraiser and he has stated that my buddy is full of BS so I want ya'lls opinions. THANKS!
