Welcome to BiggerPockets, @Kevin Hannah

You've found the forums, but did you know we also have a Blog and Podcast? Both cover a wide range of topics, including wholesaling.

Set up your keyword alerts. Use one for your local investing area and one for wholesaling so you can keep up with all the conversations.

Kevin:

Good morning, and welcome to BP! Here's some food for thought:

Before you make your first investment, meet with a mortgage/financial professional. They'll ask you to share your short- AND long-term goals, and then they'll help you construct a plan that will do two things:

1. Achieve your short-term goals that will produce proceeds and resources that will,

2. Give you the wherewithal to pursue and achieve your long-term goals

Many investors start off "too hot", and they either overdevelop their first property or they spend their money too fast - either of these behavior will stop you dead in your tracks, and you probably won't even be able to achieve your short-term goals - and you certainly won't have the resources to pursue your long-term goals. Since you're not paying a mortgage pro for consulting, it's in their best interest to give you a solid plan so you're successful.

I wish you the very best!
