Looking forward to buying my first rental. I am currently considering becoming an appraiser as a career choice. I welcome anyone's input. Thanks Mark

Welcome @Mark Anderson I'm local as well. TC rental market is pretty hot right now, what areas are you looking to invest in?
Welcome aboard Mark and best of luck investing!
Looking in Saint Paul but I still need some education before I jump in. What area are you in?
@Mark Anderson noticed you are considering becoming an appraiser - the industry has changed significantly in the last few years. Connect with a few and see if you feel it will be a good fit for you. The good news is I have never met an appraiser who didn't like to talk!
BP is a treasure chest full of resources. You will find resources here from blogs to pod casts and forums. You can also send messages to members which is my favorite part of the website.
