Looking to Expand My Network in Dayton, Ohio

4 Replies

Hello Bigger Pockets Friends!

My name is David and I live in Dayton, OH. 

A Little more about me: I am a 22 year old realtor (and full time student at a local university). I have been interested in real estate investment since about the age of 12 and decided to get licensed 2.5 years ago with the mindset that I wanted to learn that side of real estate (all things real estate fascinate me). It's worked out pretty well and I've made some money while learning at the same time.

I feel as though it's finally time to move from residential sales to investing. I have educated myself over the last 10 years on real estate investing--seminars, books, podcasts, blogs, market research, etc. I know my market pretty well having been a realtor for the last 2.5 years.

Since funds are limited (who knew being an adult would be so expensive?! ;)), I'm mainly looking to build my network, or sphere of influence at this point. 

Any tips/advice for a newbie are ALWAYS appreciated as I know this learning process will never end!

Thanks and happy investing!

Welcome to the forums. I'm Cleveland, Ohio based so my network may not be of much help to you in Dayton. That said, I imagine a lot of the midwest specific knowledge that applies in my back yard will translate to your market as well. I'm also licensed to practice law in Ohio so feel free to bounce questions off of me.

Best of luck to you,

Tim

welcome to the site. My advise to you would be Market yourself, Market yourself, Market yourself never take the foot off the marketing gas pedal

Welcome to BP David,

You might consider Niche or Specialized Housing like student housing. Rents can be 2-4 times more. Remember you don't have to own a property to control it.
