New Investor in Cumberland, RI

6 Replies

Good Morning BP,

My name is Nate Bowser, and I stumbled across the site after some time in researching my options at getting into real estate investing.  I live in Cumberland, RI with my wife and son, and my day job is Network Engineering.  I have an undergraduate degree in Economics and I am nearly done with a Masters in Operations Management.

For goals, I want to build a portfolio of investments that will one day help me retire early, as well as provide a great source of income when I am retired.  I have a 401K that is working beautifully, but once you start drawing from that you are giving yourself a deadline to being broke.

I am still learning, and I want to get started on my first deal soon, but I also would like to get into medium apartment buildings, as in 10+ units.  I don't feel that I will be looking into single-families currently, but if there is one thing I have learned through life, flexibility provides the greatest opportunity.

Best of luck to all of you as we go down this road together.

Nate, welcome to the site. I am also based in Rhode Island and also skipped single family homes to focus only on multi-family.

There is a real good investors group in Rhode Island (search for RIREIG in google) that you will find very helpful as you proceed. 

Good luck

 Good Morning Fred, and thank you for the tip.  I have visited the group last month, and am looking forward to joining them again this month.  Are you a member?
