Big fan of Bigger Pockets. This is not a gripe... or at least not suppose to be.
My lovely Bride and I are in the process of purchasing our first home. Its a 4 unit that will be our primary residence. I just signed up to be a Bigger Pocket Pro Member and was thinking that I would get access to the Lease Agreements for my state (NH). I chose to go the route of monthly payments ($39/mo). I am having trouble getting access to the Lease Agreements though. Do I need to pay for an entire year subscription to get these? I am weighing out the Cost to Value concerning the membership. My personal position is that it is very unlikely that I will purchase another property in the next 365 days so I don't expect to wearout the Property Calculator. $39 isn't the end of the world for me. $400 is a good chunk of cash. I'm thinking of canceling the membership and just paying the $99 for my state specific Landlord Forms. After all, Scott Trench says save every penny. All-in-all, I have been reading/listening to bigger pockets for years now so I suppose it is about time for me to open up my wallet.
Whats the general consensus of the masses?
Bigger pockets is great, not sure if a pro membership is needed for starting off in investing.
I would want a lease approved by a a lawyer no matter what. My advice, get a generic lease, add any pertinent info you think you need and have a local RE lawyer familiar with state lawns and regulations review.
Thank you, that is just what I will do.
