My name is Brandon Starr and I'm from Columbia, South Carolina. My goal is to house hack my first first investment with a duplex and I'm looking forward with going on the journey with you guys. 

I'm from out of town, and currently in escrow purchasing a 4-plex in Columbia, SC. Will like to connect with other RE professionals in SC for mutual support, and possible investments strategies, thanks.

Welcome, Brandon! 

I like your plan....if I could start over I would house hack early and often. Kudos on your strategy and keep us posted on your journey.

The second is a post that will help get you focused with your real estate investing goals:

The last one is a post that will help you choose an “investor friendly” real estate agent. There are many agents out there, but it’s important to choose the right one.

I love answering questions if you have any! Good Luck :)
