New to Bigger Pockets from Macon, Georgia

7 Replies

New to Bigger Pockets but have been investing buy and hold for five years.  Came across the website just recently and have become consumed with the forum and podcasts.  I have really been enjoying all the information given.  Joshua Dorkin and Brandon Turner have been educational and entertaining to say the least. I also believe Jason Scott is in my area and in my field of interest. I would love to ask questions and get more involved.

I have slowly been buying rental properties for the past five years using the old fashioned and conservative method. In a nutshell,  I work to save enough for a 20% down payment, purchase a rental, and begin renting that unit, rinse and repeat.  This process takes about one year for each house. I have a full time job and do the renting on the side. I would really enjoy real estate investing to be my full time career. In search of insight from the pros to decrease my down time between property purchases as well as increase my purchases per year.

Thanks BP!

Welcome Jason, my current model is very close to your case. I have been coming to Macon REIA. It is a great place to learn and get to know people. I am hoping to develop a faster and bigger strategy some day.

welcome to Bigger Pockets.  We are alike, been buying and running this for awhile and then found this site.  already learning new ideas to move up the timeline by just watching podcasts and reading the forums.
