The Top Five Bigger Pockets Podcasts For Motivation and Education

When it comes time to get educated, Bigger Pockets has been my go to website for years. While the podcast has existed in several forms over the years it wasn’t until last year that the guys over at BP took it to a whole new level, here’s what you need to check out.

The great thing about their podcast is you never know who to expect, from best selling authors to virtually new investors you get a taste of it all. Something for everyone and at the convenience of being able to listen to them virtually anywhere.

In the world of real estate investing you don’t always want to attend a meeting or read a book, the option to listen to an interview of a real investor doing real deals and sharing their strategy is huge. Not only can be hugely motivating and uplifting there is an insane amount of educational value behind them.

Here I’ve selected five of my favorite podcasts I thought others might enjoy to check out. They cover a broad range of real estate topics and have a little something for everyone. Check them out!
