New Investor in Virginia Beach/Hampton Roads Area

3 Replies


I am a new member to bigger pockets as well as a new investor. I currently serve in the US Navy and am looking for someone with experience that needs help or is willing to let me shadow them for whatever. My goals are to get into buy and hold real estate and earn extra passive cash flow for my family. I am willing to help with whatever for free as long as there's something for me to learn! I have experience working with my dad doing demolition and remodeling and would love to help out where I can. Please reach out to me if you have time and have anything to offer or need help with something.

Thank you very much, Samuel Peters.

@Samuel Peters Welcome Samuel! I live in Richmond, but I was born and raised in VB and went to college in Norfolk. You will definitely have many options in that area. STR options in VB beach areas, college student rentals (SFR and multi) near NSU, HU, ODU, and Wesleyan. As well as regular STR and multi rentals throughout the area. Feel free to reach out with any questions of the various areas you may have. Good luck and again welcome!
