My husband and I are both new to real estate investing. We have been researching it for a few months now and came across Bigger Pockets about a month ago. We have attended a few seminars and and webinars and invested a small fortune on books about investing, but nothing beats experience and advice from other investors and that's what we are so desperate for.
We own 2 other businesses. 1 pays all the bills and 1 pays sometimes, lol. For the past year I have run ads and funnels generating leads for real estate agents. As we became more interested in investing I realized I could do that for myself as an investor.
We still have SO much to learn, but we are eager to just get started. We want to focus on wholesaling and fix and flips. We are ready to do our first wholesale deal and just want to get started!
Looking forward to learning from this group!
P.S. We are in South Texas, south of San Antonio, Atascosa County area
@Daphne Boyd Hello, Daphne. Welcome to BP. It seems like a simple thing, but reaching out in BiggerPockets about getting started as a real estate investor is a great first step. Congratulations and I wish you a ton of success.
Hello @Daphne Boyd Welcome! I too am fairly new to investing. I have one rental here in Southern California, but am looking to start investing out of state. San Antonio was one of the areas I was looking at so would love to hear what you think about the area. If you ever want to chat please PM.
Welcome to BP Daphne! In addition to reading all the great information here, start reaching out to people and making time to meet with the frequent posters here. Also would recommend trying to attend some of the investment meetups and meeting other individuals who are just as excited about investing as you!.
Best of luck on your journey.
Thanks Brian! We are doing just that. We have made friends with a few other newbies and will be attending the next Alamo REIA event. We also have made partnerships with a couple of real estate agents acquainted with investing.
Good to see you are in SA too!
