Good Evening,

So things have currently changed for myself and I am now looking into getting some property in New York area some where. I will most likely be going to school there ( currently in the world) but again I will need s place to stay. My bought about doing a multi family and then living in one side, but I know New York can be a tough place.  No idea even where to begin there. 

Thanks for any advice

I live in long Island not the cheapest place in the world but much cheaper then NYC (by square foot) and still able to get into NYC for school or work. I know many people that do this. If you have any specific questions please feel free to contact me.

Welcome to Bigger Pockets. BP is full of resources. You will find resources here from blogs to pod casts and forums. You can also send messages to members which is my favorite part of the website.

Buying a 2 family and having the tenant pay your mortgage (or at least some of it) is a great way to get started.

Thank you all for your input. @ James Wise, how do i go about finding potential property like that? I have been using Zillow, and Realtor, and Truilia, but i'm generally finding things that need substantial amounts of rehab, which i personally can not do, and i don't think i would be able to afford.

Real estate agents would be the best bet.

You may need to increase your budget to find what your looking for.
