New investor from Aurora, IL

Hello BP!

My name is Daniel Denon and I’m a relatively new investor, looking to build a portfolio of rental properties in and around DuPage County. I stumbled onto BP a few months back and I wish I found it sooner! It’s such an incredible wealth of information: the podcasts, the blogs, the experiences of so many other users, etc.

Like a lot of others, I'm working full-time while trying to build the passive income stream on the side. Unfortunately, I sat on the sidelines for a lot longer than I should have before finally jumping in last year. My brother and I acquired our first property back in January and we're actively looking for additional single-family or small multifamily properties, both buy-and-hold and "BRRRR" opportunities.

Definitely planning on being more involved here on BP and hopefully meeting more of the other folks here in the Chicago suburbs!

Hi @Daniel D. !

Reading your post, I absolutely relate! I am in a very similar situation. We got our first rental property last year and are looking for our second in DuPage County as well. Unfortunately, the market around us still seems pretty hot at the moment. 

Best of luck though!
