Newbie from Atlanta area interested in Wholesaling

3 Replies

Hello everyone!!!! My name is Tracey, from the Atlanta area. My interest in real estate investing started a few years back which lead me to buying my first (and currently only) rental property. I'm interested in furthering my knowledge and portfolio in real estate investing, more specifically - Wholesaling.

I discovered this BP forum while in a paid RE "training" class which promised to walk you through your 1st wholesaling deal. While they were doing another upsell pitch I found a lot of good information on BP and knew I needed to join this community.

My overall goal is to become knowledgeable of various options that can be considered when looking at a property deal. Looking forward to interacting on this community!!!

Welcome to BP @Tracey Simmons . This site is the best free education you can find. You can probably learn anything here for free that you paid for in the training.

Thank you @Russell Brazil  and @Paul Timmons for the welcome and information. I have 100 days to complete a wholesale deal and I get my money back for the class. So I will be digging into this information immediately along with setting up the right biz structure and power team needed for RE transactions. The clock started from Friday.I know it will be a lot of work to do, lot of learning,  but I'm motivated. This information is a BIG help. Thanks!!!
