New to the business in Maine

7 Replies

Hi, I’m new to this business and am pretty excited to have found Bigger Pockets. I’m from Scarborough, Maine.

I currenty drive a tractor trailer over the road. I got divorced about two years ago and have been driving ever since. I’m getting my finances and credit score back in order and figure I will settle back down in Maine in about 6 months to a year.

My goal initially is to purchase an REO duplex, utilizing a VA loan, which will be my primary residence. I then plan on flipping at least one house and seeing how that goes.

I’d love to hear from anyone, especially fellow Mainers! Are there any clubs or meet ups that I could attend in Maine? Any posts or forums I should pay special attention to?

Thanks everyone!

@Andrew Mowry Welcome to BP! You found the right place to learn everything there is about real estate investing. The meet up Tim mentioned is very good and I would highly recommend it.

I am in Scarborough most days and would be happy to meet up for coffee or lunch and discuss REI. I am a Realtor, as well as an investor and developer, and am always willing to help in any way that I can.

Best of luck on your journey!

Hi Harrison, thanks for introducing yourself to me!

Unfortunately I’ll be working the day of that meeting. Hopefully I can make it to the next one. 

I’d definitely like to meet up with you for lunch or coffee though. 

Thanks again!

Hi Tim! 

Thanks for saying hello and letting me know about the meetup. I wish I could make it but I’ll be on the road for work that day. Hopefully I can make it to the next one.

Much thanks,

Thank you so much Andrew!  I’m very excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. I’ll have to check out your podcast episode. 

Cheers! 

 You should, I've heard from reliable sources that is the greatest podcast in history... or something like that.

Anyways, welcome aboard again, and good luck!
