Hawaii to Tennesse, RE Rookies Buying First Investment Property

Hey BP Team! My husband and I will soon be moving from Oahu, Hawaii to Cookeville, TN (in between Nashville and Knoxville) and are looking for any/all recommendations for Team Members in the Middle Tennessee area. This will be our first property that we intend to house hack but we are looking to build a Team as our next move would be in the STR realm within the 2023 year. Thanks to BP, we have been connected with one lender, but would love to hear any recommendations for additional lenders, investor friendly RE agents, contractors and RE tax professionals.

Additional details: We intend to house hack a multi-family but are open to a single family if the numbers work. Our current max budget is around $350k depending on the loan type. Thank you!

Thank you @Grant Schroeder! Skylar, I'd love to chat with you. Cookeville is a great area. I currently house hack a multi family property outside of Nashville and am an agent myself and have helped lots of house hackers in the middle Tennessee area find a good situation. 

Let me know and we can chat this week!

Would focus on 2-4 properties, so you get as much experience as possible and maximize your ROI.

 My girlfriend currently lives in Knoxville and I live in NC, We have been together for about two years seeing each other 2-3 times a month. We're both 16 and plan on moving in July of 24 in an areas in or near Knoxville. We plan on house hacking and starting our RE journey why she goes to college. I would love to dm or chat with you both about the market, contacts, etc because this is a very exciting post. I love meeting new people interested in RE and it's cool you mention Tennessee!
