Hello everyone. My name is Robert Sanchez and I'm new to Real Estate Investing. I plan on learning as much as I can to get started in wholesaling, and networking with like minded individuals.

Robert:

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 behaviors 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!

Grant

Hello sir,

Thank you. My main focus right now is wholesaling and networking as I grow. Have a few private and hard money lenders I've connected with, but not sure how to use them to my advantage yet. Yes, a lot of good info on this site.
