My Name is Jerome Young Jr. I too am a fresh newbie to real estate investing here in Hyattsville, Maryland. Currently, I am venturing into wholesaling as my intro of choice to jumpstart my new career and pursuit of time freedom. Afterwards, I later plan to learn and master creative financing techniques as my long term investment strategy. I would love any advice anyone could give.
PS., This is the best forum of real estate help I have found on the web. I really appreciate being a member of BP and thanks for any and all the forthcoming advice. I look forward to it.
Hi Jerome, welcome to BP. This is definitely a place to learn a lot about real estate investing its also good to check out the podcasts. You are not that far from me I'm in Lanham. Wholesaling is a good way to build up some cash to invest in buy and hold.
Best of Luck

Welcome to BP @Jerome Young . I really like the fact that you say your pursuit is for "time freedom". Isnt that what financial independence is really about? Having the time to enjoy our lives and other pursuits.
What is unfortunate I think for my wife, is that much of what I enjoy in life is my profession, which is real estate, therefore much of my time is monopolized by my profession.
Welcome to BP @Jerome Young !
Hi Jerome, I'm in Clinton (although I am vacationing in Malta at the moment). Folks at BP and in our DMV area tend to be very helpful and we all love talking real estate. Feel free to reach out. Best, Teresa
