Experienced Landlord, but New Investor in Detroit Metro

4 Replies

Hey fellow BP members! I’m Phil and moved to Detroit last fall for a new job. In FL, my wife and I turned our individual houses into rentals when we bought a house together that also had a carriage house so we had 3 rentals. We sold it all and moved north and now we’ll look for 2-8 unit multis or SFR here. I’m so excited about all of the BP tools I became Pro after Brandon’s recent webinar! Here’s to hoping I can be a part of the great resource here!

Welcome to the Detroit, Metro area. I would make sure you get an understanding of the market here and pick some core areas you would like to invest in to get a start. Having a good reliable team such as PM's and contractors  is key and can be hard to find in the area.
