Good morning, and thank you for opening this thread.
I'm a 32 year old guy in the Boston area, who has spent the last few years knowing he wanted to invest in real estate, and unsure about where to begin. After reading everything I could (and I know there will always be more), and recently (finally) buying my own home with my wife, I know now is the time to focus my attention on investing.
My wife and I both know that we want financial freedom, and we know that real estate is what we want to focus on to get there. We know much of the basics, as we've always been very interested in the topic, and have always looked around to see what is selling, and where. Our question now is... what is working for successful investors in the Boston area.
We have a bit of money saved up, but not a whole ton, and we are extremely eager to learn from those of you in the community that are successful investors - what you're investing in, what types of properties you're looking at, in what locations, and what types of listings you're going after (foreclosures? short sales? FSBO?)
We are two very hungry, very eager people looking for someone in the Boston area to learn from. Anything you have to offer in terms of knowledge would be extremely helpful, and very much appreciated. I would be more than happy to meet you for coffee or treat you to lunch, dinner, or drinks if it's convenient enough. Who knows - maybe we could even begin a great partnership. If you need anyone with a strong analytical background, I would love to reciprocate your knowledge with some of my own, if ever you need it.
Thanks very much for your time reading.
You'll find that BP is a great place to learn. Start with the Ultimate Beginner's Guide and then listen to all of the podcasts. You should also set keyword results for topics and locations you are interested in.
Finally, and most importantly, find 3-4 local REIAs and go to each of them monthly. Networking can be difficult for some people but it will help you the most.
