Contractor · Manassas, Virginia

Hello and glad I found this site. We're a General Contractor in N. VA and have been looking at REI for some time. We're considering opening our own brokerage as some of us already have our real estate license. Buying and flipping entry level homes seems to be where our most interest exists, primarily because of price point and experience. We'd appreciate any help, advice or hearing from anyone on the BP network!

Thanks for reading another noob post!

@Steve H. Welcome to the forum. I too am a Newbie to the REI in N. Va. I have been reading up on things for the past three years and now that I am finishing up my Masters, figured it was time to pull the trigger on investing. My heart is in flipping but need to build capital first. Would also like to be included in any meetup... help create a win-win for each other.

Real Estate Investor · Hagerstown, Maryland

Robert, just opened a fortune cookie last night "To get ahead you first need to get started". Good luck getting started. This site is full of advice from seasoned professionals. It's a great sourse of information.

Contractor · Manassas, Virginia

@Robert Rodriguez - congrats on the accomplishment! I've seen some ads on BP talking about how some investors are working full time and investing part time. Do you plan on investing fulltime or Partime?

@Ben Dillard - So very true! I figure if everyone stops writing now that I could read everything by year 2100!

Likewise. Welcome! I'm in Rockville and happy to meet up for lunch.

Wholesaler · Herndon, Virginia

I'm a little late to this thread because I just joined BP today. I'm in NoVA too. Did we decide on a meeting at all? I would love to meet with other local investors (and I'm brandy new to investing, so I'm a sponge when it comes to learning)....

Residential Landlord · Washington, DC

@Marybeth Henry, Hi I'm in Reston. Welcome to BP!

Multi-family Investor · Central Virginia Area, Virginia

Welcome! I'm in the Lynchburg area. I'm more of a buy and hold guy, but not averse to an occasional flip or fix and rent. There are many ways to be successful in this business. Find your niche and work whatever angle works best for you. Best of luck!

· Bristow, Virginia

Hello another newbie here in N.VA my name is Brent nice to meet you all! Id like to get in on this meet up lets make it happen (again if you already made it happen)

· Alexandria, Virginia

I'll give this thread a bump since its been awhile. I'm in Alexandria and would like to learn how to buy and hold in this area.

Have you done any deals yet @Steve H.? Did you move to the area yet @Glenn Espinosa? Did I meet you @Cheryl C. at the REIC meeting two weeks ago in the front row with the same name :)
