Super excited and pumped! I've been totally consumed with learning all I can about RE investing (books, podcasts, etc) and now I'm ready. I've landed on Pittsburgh, PA as my first property location. I've been looking at SFH for my first deal and the numbers look good. I'm looking to invest in "B" neighborhoods; but since I've never been to Pittsburgh, I can only rely on what I read on the internet.
Looking for an experienced, reliable and trustworthy RE agent in the Pittsburgh area who can offer expert advice and work with me on my deals.
why not multi family? my first deal was a single family but i had every intention and did create 2 units out of it.. if 1 unit is empty i still have income. Although if the location is in high demand and you think vacancy rate will be low single family can still be great investment
@Braden, thanks for replying. Definitely interested in multi-family as well. In fact, that would be my preference. Seems easier to find SFH and I'm starting to feel analysis paralysis.
Hi Joni! I live in Pittsburgh if you have any questions on the different neighborhoods. When my friend from San Jose visited, he couldnt believe how affordable homes are here. That was 10 years ago, and some neighborhoods have started to go up, but there are still some good deals around here.
Hi Joni: as someone who has sold both residential and commercial real estate in Pittsburgh, I will be the first to say that commercial is much easier to find than residential. There may be more residential listings than commercial, but if you drive around the city you’ll see many residential complexes (with more than 4 units, counting them to be commercial) without current tenants or caring owners. And in this market, the more units the better, which goes against all the short-sayings of quality over quantity.
Give me a PM if you have any questions. I work at a firm downtown that holds a majority stake in Pittsburgh area multifamily because not only do we sell the most (70% of Pittsburgh Sales in the last quarter) but most of us are investors ourselves.
I’m (almost) a licensed agent in PA, just waiting for it to finalize through the Commission. I was born and raised here as well as currently invest here, so I know the area pretty well from an investor standpoint. I also work for some of the most experienced investors/agents in this area so I have access to a wealth of knowledge in addition to my own experience. PM me if I can be of any help to you! Good luck!
