Hey BiggerPockets! My name is Jared and I've recently become very interested in Real Estate investing (primarily buy and hold duplex/multiplex). I've been working on getting my finances in order and think I could make some moves hopefully in the not-too-distant future. I see there are a few folks here from Rochester and was curious if there was ever a meetup with BP members? I see one just started over in Syracuse, but I don't think I'll be able to make it out there. I also see there's a 'Freedom First' REI club on meetups.com which I'll probably go check out, but curious if there were other options. I will definitely be looking for some direction if I find a good deal. Looking forward to learning a lot and stalking the forums!
Welcome to BP Jared. You could look for local investors or start your own REI club in your area.
hey Jared - I’m in Rochester NY and getting involved in real estate - happy to meet up
There is one the first Weds of the month at Johnny's if I'm not mistaken. I haven't made on yet but plan to.
And welcome aboard
Welcome to the community! I go to a monthly meeting for Tri-County REIA. It's a relatively new group, but has lots of people with excellent experiences to share. Feel free to look it up or ask questions!
Welcome Jared, I've attended the tri-county REIA grouo and the FFREIA group of ROCHESTER. In my opinion this is a very clean mmectex community for investors with theee groups I know of at least. Enjoy the area
Hi All. We have been investing in the Syracuse area for 10 years. We plan on entering the Rochester market within the next few months.
I'll try to attend the FFREIA and Tri-County in the next few months.
Maybe I will see some of you folks there.
We will be looking for you Chris and good luck in the new market.
Hi @Jared Frederickson welcome to BP. There is alot of very knowledgeable folks here willing to help. Reach out with any questions. Good luck!
Thanks for all the input everyone, I appreciate it! I'll definitely look into those groups.
Welcome @Jared Frederickson ,
I know of the one at Johnny's but I have never made it. I need to put it on my calendar and actually head out there once. There is plenty of good information here and always someone willing to give a hand.
Welcome to bigger pockets, I'm an aspiring investor myself but I am a licensed real estate agent, if you want help finding these deals let me know, I also k now a few ways you can obtain financing, I'd be happy to help
@Julien Walthour i am an interested in financing. I recently got my second MFH and i am looking to get another but with the limitations from banks i don't think i can go through that route. If you can send me a direct message so that we can talk further i would really appreciate it
