It may have been Socrates who said;
Smart people learn from everything and everyone. Average people learn from their experiences. Stupid people already have all the answers.

There are many areas of life where it would pay to have a mentor, but when it comes to property investing, I believe it is even more crucial.
Because you have a small window of time and a finite amount of resources in which to get it right.
To put it simply, any mistakes you are going to make are going to cost you a great deal of time and money.
It is probably why most property investors never reach a level of financial independence.
I believe the number one reason why you need a mentor is to learn from their mistakes and to ensure you get it right the first time.
Here are my thoughts.
