New investor in Cohoes, NY

1 Reply

Hi All,

My wife and I are new to real estate investing. We both come from France, where my wife was an architect specialized in home additions.

We are looking to get started in real estate investing in upper state NY (in Cohoes, or Troy, close to the Albany area). We want our first house to be a multiple family rehab that we will live in and rent the other(s) unit(s).

We will be using a FHA 203k for financing and have already selected a couple of great properties!

We are struggling a bit with finding a general contractor, and would happily welcome any tips you may have.

We want to learn from that first experience and start building our real estate business (buy and hold for rental and get started with rehabs as well).

Bigger pocket has been a HUGE help so far (thanks a lot for the podcasts and great content!) and we hope to move forward by getting more active on the forum and connecting with people.

Thanks for the help!

Yoann and Lucie
