New to real estate investing and also this whole forum thing as well but I will be relocating to Austin or San Antonio area (depending on work) soon and hopefully purchasing the first property in the next couple of months or so as well. I would greatly appreciate any advice, especially specific to that general area in Texas. Thanks in advance!
Networking is key to find success. There are so many people out there with a real estate problem. Find these people, fix their problem and you will do great! Good luck with your real estate investing.
Absolutely! Lots of work ahead of me but exciting none the less. Thanks for the advice!
That's exciting I have an earful for you, I'm an agent here in San Antonio, both markets are great to invest in, both markets come with their own set of hurdles.
@Jacob Kimbrough I work and invest in both markets and would love to connect!
Hi @Jacob Kimbrough - welcome (from a fellow newbie). I have a duplex in San Antonio that I purchased last month. My advice - analyze A LOT of properties, get pre-approved, contact a real estate agent to get on their mailing list. Best of Luck!!
Thanks for the advice! That’s awesome that you got yourself a duplex im trying to do the same thing just haven’t found one yet that I think has potential to be a good deal for exactly what my goal is.
Hi Jacob, I'm a Real Estate Agent, Investor and Property Manager here in the Tampa, Florida area. The market is HOT everywhere!!!!!!! Get a solid pre-approval and you need to get a good agent that knows the market. Grab coffee or lunch with all the people on here that reach out. It's great to hear a lot of opinions and a great way to pick a seasoned agents/investors brain. Knowledge is power. Best of Luck!!!!!!
Thank you so much Mya! I definitely am trying to learn as much as I can right now and books are great but nothing is quite like talking to somebody who has done it themselves.
