New to bigger pockets and REI world.

Me and my partner have been dreaming of the moment we could begin our REI careers. Between the both of us we have around 120k and are currently looking into the Newark and Irvington areas of New Jersey. Do you guys have any tips or insider tricks or even an opinion about investing in these areas, please and thank you.

@Jose Dominguez Welcome to Bigger Pockets! Sounds like you and your partner are off to a great start! Just do as much research and get as much education as possible, prior to jumping into the REI game.

Hola Amigo!

yes, I would say, get educated first...

Books are all fine and all, but do yourself a favor, read some blogs of actual investors that document their antics the good and bad. Don't just get sucked into the success stories.

120K is an awesome  start.

I say 100K is enough. Just give that 20K to me. It makes it a lot more challenging and fun. 120K is just too easy.

I will give you my bank account in Pvt.
