From PHX, new to BP, looking to Buy and Hold

4 Replies

I have spent the past two months learning everything I can about real-estate and have been loving it! It is my addiction and BP is my dealer. I have also been looking in the Phoenix area for properties that meet the 1-2% rule to buy and hold. I need a Realtor familiar with investment properties in the Phoenix area to help me find multi-family units that meet the 1-2% rule. Perhaps I will need to move to other markets. I am also hoping that BP will help me find and develop relationships with other like-minded individuals with whom I can grow. I do this all in hopes that one day I will achieve my goal of being interviewed by the Dorkin himself on THE BP podcast!

@Mark Stoker  

welcome to the site.

I'll keep an eye out for you on that podcast.

Welcome to BP.

You have come to the right place. You will learn a lot at this platform. Buy and Hold in Phoenix Arizona at 1 or 2% is definitely possible.

Welcome to BP @Mark Stoker  

1-2% on MF is not too hard to find in Phoenix but tough to find SFR. Let me know if I can help you in anyway, I am here in Phoenix.
