Hello, I live in Fort Worth and own one house, looking to learn how to buy frequently and build a portfolio. I aim to be a Buy And Hold type of guy, but don't hold me to that. You might catch me flipping one some day.

Welcome to BP @Boyd Dixon!  Real estate is a lot of fun and the more you learn, the broader your horizon will become.  Don't limit yourself to what you think you might want to do based on what you know right now.  You're entire perspective will change after you get your feet wet.  My husband and I were only doing buy and hold, but have gotten hooked on the flip.  They can be a lot of fun!  

So dig in, read up, and when you're ready... jump on in!

 Absolutely, my number is 940-765-9536. Give me a call any time, or text. I've been out to weather ford a few times, I used to have a drum set student out there. I wonder what the market is like.

Hey @Account Closed , welcome!  I'm the Weatherford / Fort Worth area too!  Rents are definitely going up in our area.  Hopefully you'll find lots of good info here and start buying as soon as you're ready.  Just remember, you need to have cash reserves for each rental you purchase.  

Hopefully I'll be able to help you buy one soon!

Best of luck and enjoy BP!
