I live in Brooklyn, NY and like most people who live here, I've come to find that investing in RE is simply not affordable in this area. I was listening to David Greene's podcast and I'm currently reading his book, "Long-Distance Real Estate Investing." I find his perspective to be very practical and it has encouraged me to look to invest in my first rental property out-of-state, but I need to find the right people to make my first RE venture a success. If you are an investor or an investor-friendly agent in one of the more affordable markets, I would love to have a conversation with you. My hope is to find individuals who I can form long-lasting relationships with, which are mutually beneficial.
There are real estate investing networking events that occur in NYC where attendees discuss investing out of state. You may find it beneficial to start attending some.
I think your search would attract more viewers if you narrowed your search to specific cash-flowing areas that peeked your interest.
Example - I am looking to invest in Las Vegas, Nevada or Akron, Ohio.
The reason for this is because many agents, investors etc have keyword alerts for those specific keywords. Therefore they would see this post.
It also shows to the viewers that you at least did some work/analysis.
Let's connect also.
