Bay City Michigan newbie

10 Replies

Hello all. I'm very interested in learning the ropes on creative REI. Mainly want to reach out to investors who are doing something in this opportunity arena. I'm a Bay City Michigan local. So a local investor would be key to meet. More specific is there any reia meetings around the tri cities?

Welcome @Terry Rowe   I was actually looking at property in Bay City.  Got REALLY close to pulling the trigger, but ended up walking away from a deal that just wasn't right for what I want.

You have an advantage being there as there is a low cost of entry, and average rental rates.  The best of both worlds!  PLUS, you can self manage, which takes a big expense and headache off your shoulders.

Best of luck to you!

Hi Terry,

I invest in Bay City.  I'm actually originally from there, and still have a lot of family and friends there.  I have a rental there, and a property that I fixed for a flip.  

I think there's opportunities in the area, but it has its challenges as well.

Please feel free to ask me any questions!  And I'll be in town the first of June.


Welcome to BiggerPockets Terry. I run a small REIA meeting in Saginaw. DM me and I will send you the info if you're interested in coming to Saginaw for a meeting and to meet a few people.

Glad to see this post. I'm just getting started investing and would love to learn anything I can.

@Tom Bell, I will be sending you a quick note.  Thanks!
