@James Wise its a great website and I have met a ton of great folks and done well with it as well.. not as well as you since I don't know how to use social media like you do... But I sure liked
This years Warrior / Cav's rematch.. now that was good basketball..
PS I will be in Cleveland on the 26th 27th checking out the deals we bought.. since I have never been there I thought I better put some eyeballs on it.. .closed two this week again... so looks like still plenty to go around.. won't ever be in your league but am excited to check out the city.
I just posted an article that I made $77k through someone i connected here on BP.
I learned how to House Hack from BP, which has been my only deal thus far. It was one year ago and I've received around $7k from my roommate! But BP did help me look for deals and my condo has increased roughly $25k in one year so I can add that amount as well.
I really started diving deep into real estate investing 2 years ago from a post i read on google that was written by bigger pockets about how to 'trade up' real estate.
I had started previously with a rental i bought my freshman year of college (2007) with the money my parents gave me for tuition. I kept that through out college and sold it after i graduated. It paid me $600/month cash flow.
In the last two years i have bought, traded up, flipped, etc around 2 million in properties and currently own 22 units. I have used all of my own money but currently have none of my own in the deals (all bank money). It has been a great journey thus far!
I don't know for sure. I get a lot of BP members who come to my REI meetings. I partner and do deals with some of these people, so it is possible I have made a lot of money from BP's, but not sure. Either way, it is a great place to network, learn, and find deals, etc... I meet people all the time who are on here!
I'm still new here so it is too early to tell, but I hope to learn as much as the people who are active on the website.
