Hi everyone my name is Yonathan Inirio 33 yr old man from lodi, nj that has finally decided that average is not enough and wants to commit to taking massive action towards achieving my dreams of becoming a real estate investor and real estate agent. I just enrolled in real estate sales person classes to obtain my license. But I also know that the key to my financial independence will come from investing in real estate. Any feedback in regards to meetings around my area or advice on how to start investing in or outside my area your information is greatly appreciated..... 

Welcome Yonathan!

I'm doing the same thing myself, but in Florida. 

There are differences being a licensed investor, primarily the duty to disclose that you hold a real estate license, and what your intentions are. The language and strength of these depend on a variety of factors that you'll have to find out through your own research.

There are a lot of benefits too. If I want to look at 30 homes in a day, I can - not many investors have that option. And when you farm a neighborhood, you'll have multiple solutions for any situation, quickly making you the go-to guy.

Just keep in mind that you'll have more tools in the toolbox, and also more responsibilities.

Great first post and great attitude! I suggest listening to every podcast on BP. Start with number one and keep going until you're caught up. Consider yourself in school and spend as much time as you can educating yourself. You'll know when you're ready.

Meet other investors from here in person. They can provide guidance and support.
