Rookie Investor in Gurnee, IL

3 Replies

Hello. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. My name is Perry Casey. I live about 30 miles from Chicago. I am an property claim adjuster (Cat Team). Very eager to learn real estate investing. Currently finalizing my REI goals for 2018. Still looking into if I should start flipping a house or obtain a multi unit rental property. Your input would be appreciated.

That all depends on what you like to do, where you start financially, and how much risk you can tolerate!  Welcome to the family, it's a great adventure you are starting out on!
