New investor in Des Moines, IA

6 Replies

Hello Everyone,

My name is Mike and I have my own home remodeling company but am looking to transition into REI. As of now have one investor looking to invest 120,000. Originally I was just thinking about flipping homes but after spending time looking around the BP site I will eventually be looking into buy and hold as well as possibly wholesaling. Im looking into getting my real estate license for the knowledge and access to more opportunities. I have to admit I had no idea of the endless possibilities in REI and I am really excited about this new adventure.

Welcome to the site! I recently got my real estate license and started working for a broker. It's been incredibly helpful to learn the market in my area. Also, with a license, you can go look at houses on MLS on your own which is nice. Best of luck!
