Greetings BP Patrons,

I've deliberately decided to start in the real estate investment realm and look forward to connecting with other folks. I became an accidental investor through renting out my home when I moved and when the rent checks came in, it was a great feeling to see equity accumulating with someone else paying.  However, after using the Rental Income calculator, it's not quite cash flowing haha. That's okay, it's still building equity and I want to continue learning and pursue with buy and hold, cash flowing rentals. I look forward to hearing from every one of you!

Thanks in advance for everyone's support!

Were you able to filter your meet ups?  I simply added the zip code.


@Jo-Ann Lapin

Thanks for the warm welcome!  I'm curious are you investing in the LA Area?


@Dmitriy Fomichenko

Thanks for the links.  I've setup a couple basic alerts, mainly Sacramento. I'll need to figure out how to refine it.  Also curious if you are investing in LA Area?

@Geoff Chan no I can’t use any filters in there; everything is grayed out. I am not a pro so I am guessing it has something to do with it.
