New Real Estate Investor in Brevard County, FL

5 Replies


I am new to real estate investing and am eager to get started in the Melbourne/Palm Bay/Rockledge, FL area. I've learned about home improvement/rehabbing and long term investing thru renting by watching my dad who did this on the side for as long as I know. 

I'm very interested in getting started in fix and flips within the next few months and invest long term within the next year as well. I've been learning thru browsing the forums, listening to the podcasts, reading investment books and searching the MLS often to get an idea for what homes are selling for in my area. I hope to use this site as a way to connect with other investors & real estate agents in the area and to learn as much as I can. I am currently an engineer with a typical 8-5 desk job I couldn't be happier to leave for a life I can live on my own terms. I am lucky to have family who has experience in this business to help me get started in financing my endeavor, and if anyone is in the area willing to share their experience and knowledge, I would greatly appreciate it!
