Just starting out and would like to buy a multi family property. Preferably a 3-4 unit that the numbers work. Capital is not the issue it’s the experience factor and networking. Would consider partnering up or other suggestions. Would work for free for seasoned investors and developers. I’m located in the South Shore Ma area. Boston is a short drive away. Open to any suggestions. I was thinking of getting my realtors license in the meantime to learn. Thank you.
Won't be an issue either way, but I wouldn't / didn't.
@Andrew Votsis I don't recommend it unless you plan to practice.
There are a lot of costs. Licensing course, continuing education, E&O insurance, desk fees where you hang your license, MLS dues, Realtor (NAR) dues, etc.
It does give you the advantage of having MLS access, but if you have a sharp agent (*ahem...), they can handle that for you - and they'll help you to understand markets, write offers and negotiate deals.
FYI - there are a whole lot more 3-plexes on the market than 4-plexes.
On the South Shore, I'd recommend looking in Plymouth, Kingston, Marshfield, Brockton (west side), Whitman, Abington and Holbrook.
