How to invest with little money and full-time job?

5 Replies

Hey Bigger Pockets! I live in Birmingham, AL and I've done research on the market here and there are HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of potential opportunities here!! The only problem is I don't know a lot of real estate people personally, I work a full-time job and don't have the money to invest in just yet. I've listened to podcasts and read books about Real Estate strategies and finding a team even when you don't have money, etc. Any suggestions?

Hi @Ethan Morgan ,

Welcome! BP is a great resource to use. I would also suggest to speak with some lenders in your area to find out what options are available for you. You can get creative with different financing options - there are first time homebuyer programs, you can use up to 10k from your IRA as a down payment, and others. Check out this site to see if you qualify for any state programs: http://www.ahfa.com/ if you're buying as a primary residence.
