Buy and hold investor from Mechanicsburg PA

I am a long time browser at bigger pockets and recently I decided to become more active in the community.  I am a buy and hold investor in the Harrisburg PA area.

Welcome aboard the vibrant BP community. You already have some experience and with additional effort, will quickly climb the REI ladder to its pinnacle.

Since you are focused on buy and hold, I added the below links to refresh your memory as you ponder your next purchase. (RE financing) (financing options for rentals) (0-68 rentals in 4 years) (slowly building wealth through passive investing) (BRRRR explained) (house rental guide) (how to buy a rental property)

To be more successful, you simply have to work on the other elements to progress your REI pursuit. Below are some quick links to get engaged on this site.

REI books suggested by BPers

Simply, bone up on the areas that you need to expand knowledge in such as, Forums, Marketplace, Learn, Network, Analyze and Resources.

Feast on the Podcasts, #askbp Podcasts, blogs and webinars

Lastly, this site thrives on interactions and as such we encourage two way exchanges and look forward to educational and thought provoking ideas relevant to REI.

Hi Jacob, I sent you a connect request.  I'm from Carlisle PA.  I plan on wholesaling and holding, 5:1 ratio.  Let me know what your buy and hold criteria is, and I will be sure to keep a look out.


Welcome Jake.  I have some properties in the area that I think look amazing but do not have the funds currently to move on them, would be happy to send some to you if you're ready to close on one.

The local REIA Group CARPOA meets the first Thursday (7pm) of every month at the Giant 2nd floor in camp hill. Come check it out, its a great place to network and learn. We have speakers that cover many topics such as taxes to landlord law and everything in between. Good luck!
