Hello all

I am new to the investor scene. I have been reading, watching, and listening to a lot of different people/sites. It was recommended I check out Bigger Pockets by a local wholesaler here. I'm itching to find my way and achieve my dreams. Any advice is helpful. Thanks!


Welcome. This is a great forum for information. Check out the webinars. I recommend finding a mentor who can be a sounding board. It has been invaluable in my journey. Which only started this year.

Hey @Jonathan McClintock  welcome to the site! Definitely start jumping into the community here! Be sure to read through The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Real Estate Investing to help you get started.

Also - here's a couple articles you might enjoy:

Finally -be sure to setup some keyword alerts - especially for "Saint Charles" so you can jump into local conversations.

See you around the forums!

Start downloading the Bigger Pockets podcasts.  Even if the topic is outside of the business model you are interested in, download it anyway.  You will still learn something from every one of them.  Listen while you drive, work (if possible), clean the house, or do laundry.  I'm listening to one while I mow my yard this morning.   Have you picked out an area in St Charles to focus on?
