New Investor in Orlando Fl

12 Replies

Hello BP,

I've been searching on this site for a couple months and have found nothing but great people/information. Little about myself- I was a mortgage broker in West Palm Beach FL for about 3yrs and got out to finish school here in Orlando @ the University of Central Florida with my finance degree. Now I'm ready to get back into real estate and decided to be on the investing side of things. 

I've partnered up with a buddy of mine who is liked minded and we are focusing our energy on flipping preferably 3/2 single family homes under 150K. 

Thank you.

Welcome to Bigger Pockets. BP is full of resources. You will find resources here from blogs to pod casts and forums. You can also send messages to members. This is one of my favorite features of Bigger Pockets especially for asking specific questions.

hey Jorge, I too am a new investor in the Orlando area, and am working on my finance degree as well. Be sure to check out the CFRI. Great info and networking opportunities. Welcome to the community! 

Hey @Jorge Magana and @Jared Lowe , welcome to BP and the Orlando investing community!

Jared is right, CFRI is definitely worth checking out.  The general meeting is great, but A LOT of people go so it can be a bit overwhelming, the county meetings and focus groups are a great way to connect with other investors in a smaller setting.

A few tips to help you get the most out of BP and start well on your investing journey:

Start here. You'll get a wealth of REI knowledge and learn how to take full advantage of Bigger Pockets (including how to connect with other Central Florida investors).

Listen to the podcasts , get active on the forums & set up key word alerts to be notified when people are discussing topics you're interested in. 

I'm an active investor/agent in Winter Park, so feel free to reach out anytime.

I wish you both all the best!
