New to Bigger Pockets and REI

Tomeka Wray
Posted Sep 8 2022, 12:22

Hi there. My name is Tomeka and I am in Germantown, MD. I am new to REI and Rental Properties (I kinda fell into the latter part). I have my childhood home that I am managing after moving my mother in with me. I took on the project of rehabbing the home and putting in up for rent.... All of this before finding Bigger Pockets. Now the REI bug has bitten me and I want to dive in with both feet. However, with so much information on this site (podcast, blogs, bootcamps) where do you recommend I start so that I don't feel like I am drinking from a fire hose. I know that I want to focus on single family homes in PG County to rent to start with. Also looking to connect with new and experienced investors that are in the DMV. Thanks for such a great platform.

Welcome Tomeka! My first piece of advice would be to join investor meet ups in your town. It's awesome to connect with different investors and vendors in your area and start expanding your sphere, you may even find yourself a mentor. Learn as much as you can but also take action!
