BiggerPockets Makes the New York Times!

BiggerPockets Founder · Denver, Colorado

There are probably two publications that command respect above all others, and those are the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. One of my goals for BiggerPockets has always been to get mentions in both.

Well, we're halfway there!

Today, BiggerPockets was mentioned as one of the go-to resources for landlords by the New York Times in the article Resources for Accidental Landlords!

This is a great honor for me, and I'm glad that the big boys are beginning to recognize what a fantastic resource this has become.

Please do check out the article, and be sure to thank the author, Jennifer Schultz, for letting everyone know about BP, in the comments of the piece itself.

Christmas came a day early to BiggerPockets . . . :rock:

Outstanding! Years from now we’ll all be saying…”we knew Josh when…”


SFR Investor · Wheat Ridge, Colorado

Congrats, Josh. Mentioned right along with Active Rain! Very cool!

Jon Holdman, Flying Phoenix LLC

Real Estate Investor · Huber Heights, Ohio

Not only was it mentioned it was the only forum mentioned. That says quite a bit. Congrats Joshua.

Real Estate Investor · Grand Blanc, Michigan

Congrats! That's quite an honor.

I know I'd be lost without this great resource!

Real Estate Investor · Baltimore, Maryland

Josh... Congratulations... you and Bigger Pockets are on a roll. What a great way to end 2009.

One can only imagine what 2010 has in store.


Congratulations Josh and have a Merry Christmas!

Wholesaler · Detroit, Michigan

Congrats Josh..... We should all be thanking you for creating such a great source for information!! It save us beginners a lot of time and money!


Real Estate Investor · Lake Worth, Florida

Congrats Josh. I could only imagine what an honor it must be to see the hard work you have put into this site pay off big.

This site and the members have provided me with an education that I would have had to pay big money for elsewhere.

Merry Christmas Josh.

SFR Investor · Scottsdale, Arizona

How come I'm the only one who commented?

Whats up? We should represent in the comment section you guys!!!! Josh, where is your thank you comment?

C'mon guys, show some love, represent and make it obviously clear to the other readers that we're all very proud and honored to be a part of this great community.

It only takes a second to comment, do it now, slackers

BiggerPockets Founder · Denver, Colorado

Nick - I sent a personal email to the author yesterday, and was actually going to wait to see if any of you guys left your comments. On things like these, I don't like to be the first BP'er to leave my thoughts. Thanks for encouraging everyone to jump on over there!

To everyone else, it means a lot to me to read your thoughts here. I really do put my everything into this place; without all of your support, I think I would have run out of steam a long time ago.

The article is as much a sign of all that the members who participate do here, as it is a testament to what the BP team does.

Thank you, and again, Merry Christmas!

. . . and do jump on the article with your comments!

Congrats BP!!! Maybe you shouldn't be that impressed. You are already bigger than you think you are... :mrgreen:

Happy Holidays and even better 2010!!!

Wholesaler · Altus, Oklahoma

BP rocks :rock: :rock: :rock:

Congrats Josh!..That's what you get when you meet the universe half Thanks to all of you on BP that give so unselfishly, making this place such a sick (VALUABLE) resource.



Not to be the relentless donation whore but stop and think about all the sets of eyes that will be looking at the New York Times....then will be coming on to Bigger Pockets....then will be wondering who's successful enough to be a top donor pro on the site.

The great thing Josh has done as a pure courtesy is extended pro accounts to top donors, making your donation a tax deductible marketing expense.

Think about this guys. The New York Times has a paid circulation of over 1 million people. That does not include news stand purchases. This means actual readership is up near 5 million. What kind of impression do you want to make to 5 million people?

If there ever was a place where the cost/benefit of dontating $250 was so heavily imbalanced in your favor it is here. Dig deep and make this the place a present or future White House administration or Congressional Committee turns to for input on real estate legislation. It can happen. (BTW Josh - sorry to up the ante on your goals with BP there... ;-) )

Real Estate Investor · Dallas, Texas

Congrats JOSH !!! BP University Rocks!! :rock: :rock:

Real Estate Investor · New Lenox, Illinois

Very impressive to see BP folks in the comments. I don't see anyone else's site represented.

Congratulations, Josh!

Real Estate Investor · Wake Forest, North Carolina

Congrats Josh & BP nation. Many will read the article & jump right over to BP- to see what a great resourceful site this is & the wealth of knowledge that it has to offer. This makes me more motivated to jump into 2010 and get moving on these deals.

BiggerPockets Founder · Denver, Colorado

@Nick - Thank you for continuing to let people know that they can, in fact, donate to BP, and that it can be good for business.

TK, Edward, Robert, William - I don't really know much about you guys yet, but thank you so much for the support. I'm sure you can already tell that by participating and staying involved here, you'll grow your knowledge, build your network, improve your business, and make some good friends while you're at it.

James & Jon - As always, you guys are very much deserving of congrats as well, for helping keep this place running smoothly! You Rock!

Eddie - Thanks for the encouragement.


BTW - Big thanks to those of you who have jumped on the Times post and left your comments . . . keep those coming!
