Hello bigger pockets community! My Name is Arthur Timmins, I live in the Wichita, Kansas area and I was reading the book on investing in real estate with little or no money down and it refered me to this website to get help and information from like minded individuals. I'm new to the whole real estate investing but plan to learn and become a buy and hold investor. I look forward to meeting and talking and learning from you guys and hopefully one day soon share my success story on buying my first rental investment property!

Have you attended any of the Wichita REI meetings? They have one once a month (skipping the one for July due to the holiday weekend) @Daniel Wampler is the facilitator of the monthly meetings -- can find the site on

Hey Arthur,

Start with the podcasts for tons of useful information.  I personally invest in mobile homes for cashflow in Wichita and am currently investigating the possibility of a small apartment building within the next couple of years.  If you have any questions or want to get together and bounce ideas, feel free to hit me up on here!
