I’m from Reno, Nevada and new to RE. Any advice to get started on the right path? Or any meetings nearby?
Look for meetups on meetup.com and on BiggerPockets. Listen to the podcast and read the books that BP publishes (at biggerpockets.com/store). Get educated, and then take action! House hacking is an ideal starting point, or working for someone who does what you want to learn to do.
