Hello everyone my name is Nick Scapellati and I am a new to real estate investing. I live in St. Augustine Florida and am reaching out to anyone that invests in the area to talk to.
Hey @Nick Scapellati ! I don't live in the area, but my wife and I are building a rental property in Vilano Beach right now!
Hey Jake@Jake Stuttgen . That is exciting. My wife and I are building our home soon too. What kind of rental income are you anticipating at the rental being built.
@Nick Scapellati That's great!! We are building it with a turnkey company down there, and it'll be a short term rental and we are expecting some decent income from it! It's about 2 months from being done now
@Jake Stuttgen . Vacation rentals are nice here. I have considered doing that myself. You can generate nice income during the summer.
We are looking to get out of teaching and want to build passive income through rentals.
@Jake Stuttgen is the company that is building your place also going to manage it for you?
@Nick Scapellati Are you thinking you want to start with Single Family homes or what are your goals?
@Jake Stuttgen in truth I am not sure. I have looked here and also in surrounding areas at both SF and Multi family properties.
I feel like I need to learn more about this business at this point.
@Jake Stuttgen we will still be working as teachers for the next couple of years until this business can grow to the point where it can support us.
@Jake Stuttgen have you been investing long?
@Nick Scapellati hey I’m a newbie as well. I’m located in West Palm Beach Florida

@Johnny Heiss I live in St Augustine so I am looking in the NE FL areas. St Johns, Flagler, Clay, and Duval counties mainly. I am looking for SF homes or small multi family to BRRRR. I considered Putnam county as well but don't think the rental income there is stable.
@Dan Maciejewski thanks. My wife and I were recently in your area. Went visited the Dali museum and ate lunch downtown.
@Gina Cardarella . Thanks.
@Ola Dantis thanks.
@Roudolph Cinor my wife live in south Florida for nearly 20 years. Ft Lauderdale-Hollywood area.
