That's great that you're getting educated Nicholas. Can I ask why you are looking to invest in NJ? Have you evaluated other markets as well?
Welcome to Bigger Pockets.
I think that there are a lot of negatives with NJ, such as higher price point of entry, tenant-friendly court systems and high property taxes. To me, those factors make it prohibitive to invest here. Now of course, there are people who do and have done well, I just didn't think that was best for me. I invest in other states than NJ, though I live and work here.
Welcome @Nicholas Dinis ! Always good to see people starting so young!
I'll PM you so we can discuss it further.
@Nicholas Dinis. Welcome to Bigger Pockets and Thank you for your service. I invest in northern New Jersey (Bergen County). However my most recent acquisition, a multi-family, is in Stony Point, New York (Rockland County). It has fabulous views of the Hudson River.
@Dan Barli hey Dan Nj sounds similar to where im located in Nyc with higher price point of entry, tenant friendly laws , and high property taxes can you PM me to discuss further.
Welcome @Nicholas Dinis I'm a rehab investor here within New Jersey. I'm an Army guy so I won't hold you being a Marine against you:) I rehab homes throughout the state and I believe New Jersey is a great state to invest whether you're a buy and hold guy or a rehabber. Just let me know if I can help you out.
@Nicholas Dinis Welcome to BP! I am also new and looking to make my first deal within the next year. I recommend attending a BP meet up next week in New Brunswick.
