Hey BP!

Hello, My name is David McCready.

I live in Windsor, CA and relatively new to real estate investing.  I'm currently a full time Police Officer and a UH-60 pilot in the California Army National Guard.

I love my jobs, but to be honest, I do not want to be a wage slave the rest of my life.  I have been searching for a business idea that I am passionate about and I always end up coming back to real estate.  I've always thought it was too expensive for me to start my own real estate business in my area until I found this site.  I just purchased my primary residence last May ($415,000)... thankfully it has already earned quite a bit of equity. 

Beyond the aforementioned reason, I want to get into real estate investing because I want to be home more with my family.

My plan is to focus primarily multi family units for long term passive income with flips in between.  I am currently in the education phase, but my goal is to purchase my first investment property in the next twelve months. 

Thanks for the time!

Welcome to BP.

but my goal is to purchase my first investment property in the next twelve months. 

That is a very realistic goal. A lot of new investors never do a deal because they expect it to be easy and get a deal in a month or two.

Happy investing! Looking forward to learning and sharing together.

thank you all! So far I cannot get enough of this site and speaking with everyone about their experiences. Thanks for the replys!
