I am new here. I am looking to buy my first home in phoenix in the next 6 months. I want to get preapproved for a loan so I can live in for a year and upgrade a few things to sell. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on local investing groups in the Phoenix area. There is a bunch of hype out there and I don't want to get caught up in a scam. My hypothesis is if I go local with my lending it will help connect me to other real estate investors and mentors in my area instead of fake gurus. The market is super competitive here so any local knowledge I can get is much appreciated! I am now working from home so I am open to finding great deals outside of the Phoenix area.
Good Morning Connor, come join us in AZREIA, Arizona Real Estate Investor Association: AZREIA.org. I have learned a lot, and have connected with people who are doing the things I want to be doing. My first deal closes in 2 weeks! The AZREIA monthly meeting is on Monday - always really helpful information shared.
AZREIA is definitely not a scam. You will get super solid information there.
Good morning. I am just getting started as well in the metro Phoenix area. It sounds like the AZREIA is a great resource. I was beginning to wonder if there was much action locally for new investors since more post were so long ago. I’m glad to see that isn’t the case. Are the AZREIA monthly meeting always on the second Monday of the month or does it change?
