Starting out investor from Massachusetts

16 Replies

Hello everyone, my name is Dennis. I live in Massachusetts. Although I have been on this website on and off for the past couple of years I finally decided to make the commitment and start investing in RE. I think most of you have been there. It’s hard to sometimes get into something when you don’t know much about it. I am finding as I get older that the desire to have financial freedom is a worthy goal. I have done much research on best ways to accumulate wealth and every time I came to the conclusion the RE investing is the way to go. I am thankful that BP was created because it is so nice to socialize with like minded individuals. It’s nice to see that you can meet anyone on BP from a person doing investing on the side to a seasoned investor who does it full time. The possibilities are endless. I look forward to joining discussions, bouncing ideas, talking about different markets. Wish everyone much success.

Glad you’re taking this leap. Congrats

Dennis, Congrats on making the jump. I have been actively flipping and developing properties in the Greater Boston area since 2013 and it has been a great journey. I too made the commitment to do real estate full time back in 2012 and wouldn't turn back. I've learned a ton along the way on my journey and my goal is financial freedom too. 

@Patrick Wheeler Thank you! I am more of a buy and hold type. I have been noticing the in certain areas in MA, that you definitely pay a premium for turn key properties. Definitely going to look into more strategies. 

@Dennis Medina Welcome to BP. You have certainly come to the right place to learn about RE investing. There are a ton of local investors on here too which is great and local meetups. 

@Dennis Medina Welcome! Congrats on making the jump into real estate.

 What part of MA are you looking for buy and hold?

We host a local meet up once a month (Boston Real Estate Connection). 

@Enis Shehu Thank you! I’m currently looking in the Fitchburg/ Springfield area. I’m definitely interested in the meetup.
