New buy and hold investor.   Just purchased a property near the university of Akron. Looking forward to hearing from and collaborating with any seasoned investors in the area.   I will need help and know it.   

Welcome! Any particular areas you are set on or just the metro Pitt area? I see you're from Akron. New Castle, Slippery Rock, Butler are also great area's to invest in.

Actually,  I'm from Pittsburgh.  I just purchased my first property in Akron.  After I  get up and running in Akron, I would consider investing in the areas that you listed.   

Until listening to all the BP podcast,  I would have only considered single family and small multi unit residence.   now,   I would consider a small apartment complex.

I'm in Pittsburgh myself and welcome to the community! I would recommend reading some of the articles under the education tab above. Then use the community with any questions that you have. 

I'll send over a colleague request and if you have any questions feel free to reach out!
