Hello to everyone.

I am currently taking an online class and feel pretty excited about the potential of this business. I'm glad to have stumble onto this site because I'm sure that it will offer a real world perspective that an on-line class isn't designed to give. I look forward to learning.

I have been looking for a REI club in this area but so far I can't find anything. Who should I ask?

Hey

Not sure exactly where you are in Missouri but their is a link on the right hand site of the page towards the bottom that says, "Real Estate Investment Clubs." You can search by state. Hope that helps

If you cannot find a club, why not start your own? Use resources like this one and sites like Craigslist to gather people together. You can just start out as a networking group and move on from there. If you need any help, I'd be happy to throw you some more ideas.

BTW - The link skelly is talking about is on the left side of the page - Real Estate Investment Clubs

I checked the link, nothing. I'm in SW Missouri.

I'll consider starting one. The only thing that I fear is "the blind leading the blind". I may take you up on your offer of help big.

Thanks

Hello and welcome!

It's not the blind leading the blind.

Those that come to such a meeting will not all be
new to the trade. They will contribute knowledge.

If you are anywhere close to Oklahoma you should
draw from there as well as that is a good state to
be investing in rental units right now. There should
be plenty of rehabbers from there that would want
to come.
