To provide a perspective that is not likely covered in most of the ones suggestedTwo books I would recommend.The Weekend Millionaire's Secrets to Investing in Real Estate: How to Become Wealthy in Your Spare Time Weekend Millionaire assumes that the person has a full time job but wants to end up with a passive income where they can retire from their job before normal retirement (50 or so was the author's age when he retired).Nothing Down for the 2000s : Dynamic New Wealth Strategies in Real EstateThis books is one I stated with (well the 1980's version). I bought my first property at 23. The book has changed a bit over the years as has the market. That said there are lots of good ideas in the book. If nothing else your granddaughter could look at buying a place and renting out the spare bedrooms to make the numbers work. I did this and found that I was paying less to own the place then I was paying to share a house.
