Hey everyone, I am quite new the website and just wanted to thank everyone for the abundance of great information on here. I am 26 years old, looking to become a real estate investor. I work full time and on my spare time I try to read up as much as possible on Real Estate investing.
Does anyone have any experience with Buy and Hold properties in Lehigh Valley? I live in NYC and and obviously participating in this market is far too expensive for me, the same goes for Philly. I was looking at Lehigh Valley, it's only a little bit more then a 2 hour drive, so it's feasible for me. Can anyone share any insight they have on this area?
I just sent you a direct message. I work and live in the Lehigh Valley and have a few investment properties of my own in the area. I'd be happy to discuss the market with you. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
I live in New York City and Invest in the Lehigh Valley. I am originally from Brooklyn but now live in Manhattan.
The lehigh valley is very close as you suggest and the rate of return is attractive.
Lehigh Valley is big - have you narrowed down your search(Allentown, Bethlehem etc. )
Take a weekend and visit the city just to feel it out.
Please feel free to connect with me and ask me any questions that you have.
I am available for coffee or food almost anytime.
I live in Brooklyn(Bensonhurst) for over 30 years. I just recently moved over to the upper east side.
@Ronald Bowser I plan on making a visit soon. I appreciate you being kind and offering a time to meet! I will follow up when I plan to visit!
@Basit Siddiqi Thanks for the open line, I will definitely take you up on the offer! I am pleasantly surprised how open and kind the members of this community are!
@Frank Karlya Lehigh Valley is a great place to invest! I've been investing in Bethlehem for over 2+ years.
Please let me know if you need assistance with a local real estate agent, etc.
I am also from Queens and looking at this area to potentially invest in with a partner. NYC is crazy expensive.
@Ronald Bowser I'm just starting out from NJ and have been looking into the lehigh valley. I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences about this area if you have anything to share. Thanks in advanced!!
@Tzvi Ausubel Hey Tzvi! I'm a new investor interested in this area. I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences, or if you have recommendations on a good agent to start with. Thank you!!!
