Hello from the Huntsville, AL Area

6 Replies

What's happening BP? I was once a real estate agent for a brief period of time and am now blessed with a successful career in corporate development. An aspiring entrepreneur, I have setup a couple of side project LLCs and am now attempting to make REI my next endeavor. I'm a Huntsville, AL native and I've been told I wear it on my sleeve. I'm leaning toward single family properties to get started, possibly flipping, then BRRRR. I'm also planning to get started here in the area I know.

I'm here to learn so that I can do. I suppose there could be several reasons I ended up here on BP and I'm glad that I did. I'm a person of faith and I'm also one of those whose REI story might include that someone told me about the book Rich Dad Poor Dad.

Anything I can help with, let me know.

Welcome!  You found the right place to be.

I'm actively looking for property in the Huntsville area, but am focusing on multifamily properties.  Let me know if you need any advice or ever want to think about multifamily property.  I can recommend a few books at the least.

Welcome @Michael B.   I'm looking at the Huntsville area also, Multifamily like @Tobias Falzone .  I am not actively searching atm, but hope to make first purchase in 2018.  I am also a business owner and am being consumed by that at the moment.

I just created a community editable map for Huntsville area, so experts can share their knowledge about certain areas to avoid (say, like Oakwood) and where the path of progress is heading.  It's brand new and needs your input!

Anyone know exactly where the Toyota-Mazda plant is going?

Brian, thanks for the welcome. I grew up very, very close to Oakwood. I wouldn't put a blanket "don't invest here" on areas on like that. Although I get it.

The Toyota-Mazda plant will be out in the Greenbrier area. It's a good ways from Huntsville proper if you will. Try this: https://www.google.com/maps/place/34%C2%B042'01.2%... and this http://huntsvillemegasite.com/
