Hello all, my name is Kevin Marsh and I'm 25 years old. Im currently a graduate student at Wilkes University pursuing my MBA degree. I don't have very much real estate experience, but I have always aspired to be a real estate investor and the financial freedom that it can provide. Im willing to offer my time, skills, knowledge, and abilities for free to help anyone as long as I can learn from them. I look forward to meeting others and forming relationships that we can both benefit from.
@Kevin Marsh welcome to BP! There are several active investors in the NEPA area here so I'm sure they will chime in. Feel free to ask me any questions that you may have.
Thanks for the warm welcome @Chris K. Ive been doing a lot of research with the educational guides and podcasts here on BP and am excited to learn from others. Hopefully we can work together in the future!
Welcome, @Kevin Marsh . Definitely listen to the podcasts to start. What type of investments are you looking to get in to?
@Kevin D. , I primarily interested in rental properties and creating positive cash flow, but I'm open to learning about the other aspects of real estate investing as well. Do you have any advice for a new real estate investor as how to get started?
@Kevin Marsh My advice is to dive in head first. Start with something small so your downside is limited, but even if you break even on your equity, you'll learn more than reading every book and listening to every podcast. I started with a $10k house and renovated it and got it rented.
Find your strength and outsource the rest. So if you can swing a hammer, do that; and outsource the financing. If you have money and don't know anything about contracting, outsource that.
