Real Estate Investor Newbies

4 Replies

My husband, Nick, and myself (Jenny) are new to the REI business. For a few years now we have discussed again and again, our reasons for wanting to get into real estate investing. Only just recently though, have we made the decision to go full steam ahead with it. We have always been interested in different aspects of the business. After some general research, we have decided that we'd like to delve into flipping and renting. We have joined Bigger Pockets as sort of a network in which to learn as much as we can in order to succeed in our business venture.

Hello Jenny and Nick 

Happy to have you here on the site. I am a sort of newbie myself, I have been around Real Estate for a while but never got real serious until this year and realized that I want to have a better life for my family and figured I had better get started. That seemed to me the hardest part ! I don't know how far along you are but I would encourage you to find a (good deal)  and jump in with both feet. It is so easy to find excuses for why you shouldn't do it, or think you are not capable but you are ! Congrats on making the commitment and don't get overwhelmed by all the information on this site. Just be smooth and steady with your learning .
