Another newbie from Seattle area

8 Replies

Hi friends and future colleagues,

This is Anup, a newbie from Seattle area wanted to introduce myself. I've recently started learning about financial independence and soon realized real estate is a way to go (buy and hold mainly). I've invested in one SFR in Tacoma with partners who have been investing in this market for more than a year. The property is being rehabbed by them (I am a passive investor so have learnt few skills but not a whole lot during this process). I am continuously learning (reading forums and listening to BP podcasts every day during my commute to/from office.

My near term goal is to continue investing locally whenever it makes sense (close to 1% rent and at least some cashflow) and learn more about other markets for out-of-state investing.

Looking forward to connecting and collaborating with you all on the best platform on planet earth.


@Anup Shah I do buy hold investing. I don't flip because I see that as a job and I have one already. You can get involved as a lender but just make sure you find a proven one.

Hi Anup! Welcome to BP! I did a passive investment on a flip last year and made a quick 10%. It was a good first step into the world and got my blood rushing for the next deal. If you ever want to chat, feel free to reach out. I'm always free!
