Newbie asking for advice!

6 Replies

I live in Greenville, SC and am excited to take the plunge into REI. I want to start out with single family homes using the buy and hold method, however, I don't know enough about market swings to know whether or not now is a good time to buy? Any help would be very much appreciated!!

Also, I'm not against looking outside of the Greenville area if need be.

Hey Tyler!

If you buy a property below market value, you won't have to worry.

Buy properties below market value. 

Tyler, just like Rosston said. If you ever need help evaluating a property in Greenville give me a call. We specialize in buying, rehabbing, and managing SFR's.

@Tyler Fletcher properties values in the area are very high and a lot of folks are willing to pay too much for properties.  You have to be very careful in this market.

@Rosston Smith thank you! @Brian Walsh great - will do. Evaluating properties can be very challenging for someone just starting out! @Jason Burr I figured - the price per sq/ft here seems to be dramatically higher than many others. I appreciate the insight

Hi @Tyler Fletcher , prices have been increasing for the last several years and and we are in a hot market right now, but you can still find deals that make good sense as a buy-and-hold investment. The numbers still work!
