Self Introduction to the Bigger Pockets Community

5 Replies

Hello BP community!

I am 100% new to BP and real estate in general. I graduated college from Mizzou in December of 2017 and have recently gained lots of interest in the real estate market and the potential for future financial independence. I am looking to learn how I can utilize this community of like minded people to begin developing a network of connections. I am also excited to attend some forums/discussions to get some face time with others to simply do one thing: expand my knowledge base.

Hello! @Sam Runge

Welcome to BP, and congratulations on making the decision to invest in your future via real estate.

I have written a few blog posts that may help you get started here on BP, and with your investing. Please click on the links, give them a read, and share your thoughts in the comments.

First is a post that I feel will help not get overwhelmed with the amount of info that is here on BP:

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 :)
