Southern NH and MA border newbie

Hello everyone, I am new to real estate as of a year ago when I purchased a duplex. I live in half of it, the other half is rented out to the tenant which helps pay down my mortgage and taxes! I would like to pursue more investing with a possibly a few flips but ultimately build a portfolio of buy and holds for the long term.  It would be great to be able to help out local investors while picking there brains a little. I may not have a lot to offer, besides my time and a construction background, let me know how I can help!

Hi Graham, welcome to BP.

This is a great place to learn. Make sure to listen to all the BP podcasts, read the articles on the main blog and be active in these forums to learn a ton very quickly about any topic in real estate you want to know more about.

This is also a great place to meet people that can be assets to your business. Lots of great connections all over but we also have a very strong and active contingent here in MA on here so make sure to find them (Set up some keyword alerts to find out about local topics) and get connected.

Besides doing that on here make sure to get out to some of the many local investor events we have. You should look into NH REI Mastermind group in Nashua (This Wed FYI) and the NHREIA in Manchester. In MA you can look into the NEREIA in Chelmsford. Lots more options on the North Shore and going south into MA.

Hi Graham,

I'm a bit too far away to be of much use, but I wanted to pop in and say hello as you are right around the corner from my old stomping grounds of Brookline, NH. If by some chance I ever get to help you with anything, I'll happily accept payment in Parker's Maple Barn maple syrup. Hard to find good New England syrup down here in Florida.

Best of luck to you in building your portfolio!

@Graham Heagy Welcome.

You may want to start by looking at all your rental competitors to see who, with property like your own, charges the most rent and what amenities they have. Then Max out your places and get ready for your next purchase...
