Hello, everyone!! I have spent the past 30 plus days educating myself with several books from the BiggerPockets family. Working towards buying my first investment property some time in the next 6-8 months. I live in Boston, MA and am looking for some good seminars (preferably free) to attend in my state. Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions. I am very excited to be starting this new journey in my life and joining all of you in the world of rental property investing!!
Stephen - where are you based out of in Boston? I’d highly recommend taking the allston Brighton CDC first time buyer course. It’s not free but would qualify you for low interest financing programs in the state.
I’m actually a volunteer instructor for this course and would be happy to meet and chat.
Thank you @Jeremy Wirths for the mention.
Hi @Stephen Keenan we host 5 monthly meetups in MA (Worcester, Lowell, Waltham virtual) and NH (Rochester) where we bring in guest speakers to share knowledge with the group. We normally get 40-50 attendees. It’s free and open to the public. They’re posted here on BP on the Events tab under the name “Pints & Properties” but if you have a hard time finding them just let me know.
We do have some training webinar recordings on YouTube that we use for our real estate agents but it’s not organized into a training platform (yet). I’d be curious to hear what you’re looking for since creating better online resources for our clients and agents is one of our goals for Q1 2022.
@Jonathan Bombaci thank you for your response. I am a homeowner with my fiance now. I will be looking to purchase buy and hold rental properties in the future. My current savings plan puts me on track to buy by June 2022.
@Stephen Keenan - Have you considered opening up a HELOC on your primary to purchase your next property? Or house-hack and go in with a low 3.5% down payment on a multi-family? I recommend you go to some of these networking events and talk with other investors. @Jonathan Bombaci is super knowledgeable so I know his meetups are pretty educational. At the end of the day, I'm sure you have some other options available if you wanted to purchase prior to June 2022. In addition, if you ever wanted to chat about creative financing, I'm happy to help. I used a HELOC to purchase my last 3 deals.
