New member investing in Houston and New Orleans

2 Replies

Hello all,

My name is M.J. Hoda.  I'm a third-year law student, and I'm just getting started in the real estate investment world. 

I'm in the process of learning all that I can about multi-family rentals and saving money to get started. And when I really decide to get started learning about something—as I have rental property investing—I generally don't stop until I'm damn good at it. 

I currently live in California, but (long story), will be moving to Houston, Texas in 2017-18. I plan to buy my first properties in Houston and New Orleans, but am open to opportunities across the southeast and Texas. I will likely begin by house-hacking a triplex or 4-plex in Houston, and move on quickly from there. I plan to be very aggressive in the next 5-7 years (particularly if interest rates stay low). I would be very interested and grateful to learn from anyone with experience in the markets I've mentioned.

I'm a smart guy and will soon have more capital than I know what to do with. Generosity with knowledge about the Houston market—in particular—could lead to some really fun and profitable deals beginning in 2017-18. I look forward to meeting more people here on BP!

Welcome to BP, @Account Closed . If you plan to house hack just be aware that the small multifamilies in Houston that cashflow will likely be in areas you wouldn't normally considering living if you bought a SFR. But we all make sacrifices for the long term, right? :)

Oh yes indeed, I'm quite comfortable with that! Feel free to message me directly if you have experience in the Houston area Michael or just want to chat. Thanks for responding.
