I can't tell you step by step how to start a real estate or title insurance business, from home or not, because I've never done it and I don't know that business. I can however point you to a lot of very good general information about starting your business.
- You asked this question at Entrepreneur.com, which is the best place to start looking. Go back to the home page there and look at the sections to see how much is available on starting your business.
- There is a major starting your business section at www.bplans.com. That one too is marked from the home page.
- For live people, get in touch with the nearest Small Business Development Center (SBDC). You can find a list at bplans.com/sb/. These are funded by federal, state, and local money and usually provide great information for relatively low prices.
