Decide what you want to invest in then educate yourself about all that it involves. It's really a bit of an individual decision depending on your level of  experience and how much time and effort you want to invest.

Many formulas out there but that in itself won't do it. Start with this: Long term buy anything and either live in it or rent it out. Over-time, you cannot go wrong. Short-term is where people get in trouble and investing in Real Estate consists of high risk...high gain...high loss....When the Stock Market is under-performing, people flock to RE. When RE is not performing short-term, people either mattress-money or stock market depending. The question has been asked but the answers remain elusive, subjective and luck is no myth plus right time right place etc. is very necessary and out-there if you are.... Consider a mentor

Know what you are doing. Know what you are buying. Buy low, sell high and use an agent experienced in investment property to partner with to find the great deals, sell them for you and repeat.
