Anyone know of any real estate investors in Louisiana? I’m new to this but have been doing my research but I would appreciate any tips someone may have to offer!
Thank you for the book suggestions! I’ll definitely be checking those books out.
Hi @Taneisha Wells . I am both an investor and managing partner of a local real estate brokerage in New Orleans. I've been in the REI game for about 10 years and licensed for about 7 years. Welcome to BP! You've come to the right place to learn anything and everything about real estate investing.
Be sure to check out the "education" tab at the top. Lots of great resources there. A good place to start is with the free guides, such as "The Ultimate Beginner's Guide To Real Estate Investing". The bookstore has some great books and the podcast is full of valuable information.

Here is an ongoing discussion thread on wholesaling that has anything and everything you'd like to know about wholesaling: The Truth about Wholesaling! (It has been going on for 8 years and has over 800 replies, so just about anything and everything is in there somewhere!)
To begin with wholesaling, you will need to first determine which type of seller you want to focus on and then decide which way you will attract those sellers. You will need to do some form of marketing and that usually depends on your individual situation. Do you have the time to do the legwork yourself, or do you have the money to pay someone else to do it?
There are two ways to go about marketing/advertising your business...
You can go a mile wide and an inch deep, which would be marketing large scale such as blanketing an entire neighborhood with direct mail, door hangers, etc. This can get very expensive, very quickly.
Or you can go a mile deep and an inch wide. This would be very targeted niche marketing focusing on one or two particular niches. This is typically the best route to go for small companies with limited marketing budgets.
