Starting this adventure 2.0 (sort of)

I don't know if I'm "allowed" to post in the newbie section twice, but I feel its appropriate.

My name is David Wilson and a while ago I found BP, started perusing, and posted an excited newbie post not knowing what the heck my goals and desires were.  I posted hoping that the actionable step I had taken would be to my benefit; however, until recently I've been stuck in a rut and not known how to get out of it.

I currently reside in Charleston, SC and work doing residential Electrical work.  I enjoy the work, but I want and see bigger things for my family.

My brother-in-law and I have the same kind of mentality and are both super excited about real estate and the potential it gives for freedom to be with our families.  We decided to start investing in the Springfield, MO area and are focusing on Fix and Flips.  We have a private lender in place and also sort of an "in-house" General Contracting company that we will help manage.

My wife and I have a lease on an apartment in Charleston until June, but I'm working on all the remote portions of the investing while we wait for the lease to end. While I can't be "boots on the ground" yet, I'm excited about this opportunity and I would love to connect with investors in the greater Springfield, Missouri market to talk, learn from, and potentially partner with. We are also looking for wholesalers in the area for flipping deals as well as doing in house marketing and trying to get what we can from the MLS

We are really excited about this new opportunity we have and the potential for where it takes us.

If you are from Springfield and are active on here, please reach out!  I'm more than happy to get in contact and see what things we can do to be able to help each other out!

Thanks in advance!  Any and all questions y'all may have, I'm open to communication!

Let me know when you get to Springfield. I'm doing vacation rentals down in Branson and nothing in Springfield but I'll meet you at the REIA and introduce you to a few folks that are in that market.

What made you choose Springfield?

It'll be great to meet you at the reia!

We chose springfield because my brother in law lives in Ozark, and we have some established relationships there. Our father in law lives out in the country in Ava and my wife and I eventually want to buy land and live out there once we've built up a portfolio of cash flowing rentals (future focus)

So really springfield is a little bit convenience mixed with a little necessity because of family; however, I think I might want to branch out to either the Kansas City or St Louis market...but that's a ways away.
As They're always saying on the podcast, you can always find a place to invest within just a few hours of wherever you live

Flipping I can't help you with but if you're looking for high cashflow with rentals then let's sit down when you get here and I think I can open your eyes to a new market.
