Hi there !
The names Jordan Moore but I later plan on being called “Duplex Dan”! I caught the real estate bug about a year ago ￼and I chase it every single day , right about now I’m in the education faze working hard at the 9-5 for my first down payment. Books I’ve read include rich dad poor dad, think and grow rich , and I’m finishing Brandon Turner’s “The book on rental property investing”. I listen to the BP Podcast and analyze deals daily. I’m 18 year old in the Phoenix area looking for solid teachers that can teach me a thing or two about this game , I’m highly aware of snake oil salesman and gurus ( GROSS!) . All jokes but I’m just a young guy looking for all suggestions, books , mentors, events, and jobs in the Phoenix area that will help benefit everyone! Feel free to message me or drop a comment.
Have a good one :)
What up Jordan!
You are definitely in the right place, cContinue to educate and network and everything else will come together. I would encourage you to not get caught up in the education vortex and try to get out there and take action in the industry.
It might feel scary and uncomfortable at first but doing opposed to watching is the best way to learn in my opinion.
Feel free to reach out! My girlfriend lives in Phoenix so I am somewhat familiar with the area but by no means an expert.
Hey @Jordan Moore
Congrats to you for your ambition! I work with a bunch of young aspiring real estate investors just like you (in a free online group), and I am willing to help you out with some advice or even chat on the phone if you wish. But first I recommend you read this article I wrote for Bigger Pockets titled How to Invest in Real Estate Before Turning 21. Once you've read it, let me know your thoughts and if you have any questions. I am a high school teacher in Colorado and I am always looking to help young people get started in real estate investing or help in any way I can. Let me know if you want to chat sometime. https://www.biggerpockets.com/...
@Blaine Alger Wow thank you so much boss ! I will take your advice and attend 10 real estate events this year !!
@Dan Sheeks insanely helpful Dan I really look forward to gaining knowledge and taking action with your help, great to know your on my team ! We will get in contact soon. :)
Hi @Jordan Moore ! Here are a couple more books for you, also published by BP:
- 1) Set for Life by Scott Trench
- 2) The House Hacking Strategy by Craig Curelop
I read those exact same books you outlined before I got started, in addition to the two above. Don't lose sight of the long term game... and once you are financially ready, do not fall into analysis paralysis! Your first deal may not be your best deal, but your first deal will teach you SO much. Stay excited, motivated, and never stop educating yourself. Rooting for ya!
@Grace Wang Thank you so much Grace ! I’m adding those to the Amazon cart right now ! I look forward to telling you about my progress!! :)
