How’s it going ?

My name is Stedman Valentine currently located in Columbus, OH i’m in the very beginning stages of my R.E journey. I’m looking to connect with all R.E professionals, with hopes of  receiving feedback in regards to ( Leveraging Credit, Finding the right lender, Loans, Investment strategies etc) overall I’m currently in a good position with a down payment, credit, debt-income. I’m just not quite sure where to start !?!

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, helping me get one step closer to my ultimate goal of obtaining my FIRST investment property!!

Thanks !!!

Would love to link up! I’m an agent by trade and a small MF investor here in Columbus.

You'll find that As big as Columbus is you'll run across the same names in the REI community.

 Hi Stedman, I would start by connecting with a real estate agent who is focused on investments. A good agent will be able to help you get started. 

The amount of times OH or Columbus has popped up on BiggerPockets as a market to invest in even just in the last week is a lot! 

So, you did not have a market issue and possibly a ton of options to invest in something. If you are unable to HouseHack, find a 3 bedroom to buy and maybe rent out rooms to friends depending on what stage you are in your life. 

As they say, there are a 100 ways to invest in real estate!
