New Investor From Massachusetts - Now In FL

1 Reply

Hi there,

My name is Alex Evans. I am a 25 year old aspiring real estate investor and Marine Corps veteran. 

Originally from Cape Cod, MA I have recently moved down to the Tampa, FL area with a friend who has already begun investing in multi-family properties.

I currently work for myself full-time as a freelance web developer and have a background in digital marketing and computer science from Bridgewater State University as well as Miami's Wyncode Academy.

I am beginning to learn more about multi-family investing as well as wholesaling. My goal is to utilize my VA home loan to make my first purchase; it's encouraging to see so many other veterans have success with that.

As I've mentioned, I'm brand new here so feel free to reach out. I look forward to connecting with you!

Welcome to BP Alex,

Good luck down there in FL! I am also new to the real estate investing market. it is good to see other Marines using the benefits they deserve! I don't think I will be moving down to FL from the Cape any time soon but I am curious to see how it all works out for you. I did try to use the VA home loan while looking at homes back in 2014 and they are extremely picky about any issues with the house (broken lattice) so you have been limited to a turn-key property. Not sure how long you plan on house hacking but I am sure the reward will out weight the cost.

Again good luck and welcome!
