Hello from Detroit!

Posted Jun 17 2022, 10:27

I am based in Detroit, MI. I am looking to build my portfolio in the heart of the Motor City! 

Bigger Pockets taught me my first step into real estate through house hacking. I currently own an owner occupied duplex in which the second unit is rented through Airbnb. Thus far I have been fully booked! 

I am a Architectural Designer for an international Architecture firm.

@Bianca Johnson we're also in Metro Detroit, so welcome!

Keep an eye on City of Detroit statutes regarding STR's as they keep making it more difficult.

Also, be sure to start networking with other investors!

REIAofOakland.com, MREI.com, MacombREI, etc.

Welcome to BP! This is a great place for learning and getting some questions answered. I'm new to the real estate investing scene but I'm currently looking for my first house hack! I am a real estate agent here in Michigan and I'm not to far from Detroit! Let me know if I can help you with anything!
