Newbie in Griffith, Indiana - real estate license & multifamily

1 Reply

Hey, It's Mindi! I am a complete newbie when it comes to real estate investing, as my only experience in real estate to date has been purchasing two primary residences. In April 2018, I read Rich Dad Poor Dad after running the numbers and realizing we would never reach financial independence with our current rate of active income. It all clicked!

Since that time, I've immersed myself in everything I could find about becoming a real estate investor, which led me to the BiggerPockets podcast. The content and topics resonated, and BiggerPockets provided EXACTLY the resources I needed to continue aggressively learning about real estate along with the tools to put that education into action.

MY SHORT-TERM GOALS

1. Buy my first property. Planning to invest in small multifamily rentals in my backyard (Northwest Indiana) with the buy-and-hold mindset. My hubby is a seasoned journeyman carpenter with a good number of contractor connections nearby, and he's eager to stop working as a Union carpenter and put all of his energy into real estate investing.

2. Get my real estate license in Indiana. Just started my online RECP today. Since I'm getting into real estate for the long haul - not a fly-by-night, get-rich-quick approach - I am investing in my real estate education. This should save me money on my own future deals, while also helping me gain credibility within the industry and my local area as a serious real estate investor and deal maker.

As for my professional background, I have been working as a freelance social media marketing strategist for 7+ years helping B2B companies generate and nurture high-quality leads on LinkedIn.
