Welcome Gabrielle!

You have come to the right place! Great first step to learning and investing.

I highly recommend BP's Ultimate Beginner's Guide, it helps to form a general foundation in the industry. Couple that reading with listening to the BP Podcast and you will find yourself discussing REI in a much more professional manner very quickly. Additionally, the podcasts provide real life examples of how people got started, which canhelp you to form your own strategy of how you would like to get started.

Philadelphia also has some very useful online tools to access public records.

Best of luck!


Welcome to Biggerpockets @Gabrielle Foster!

I have been investing the last 3 years in Philadelphia growing my portfolio. Feel free to DM me with any questions. I am also a licensed real estate agent and can help you with anything you need. One of the reasons why I got my license was to be able to make multiple (low) offers on properties without having an agent get annoyed by the volume of offers- so I totally understand why we need to make multiple offers to secure good deals! I do it all the time.

Good luck
