I'm a long-time listener and reader of BP but fresh to Milwaukee. My partner and I are interested in predominately buy-and-hold multifamily. We look forward to meeting all the wonderful people on this forum and hopefully contributing more and more to the community!
Hi, Patrick - you are in good company. There are a ton of great people from Milwaukee on the site. I actually host a meet up in Wauwatosa every month. If you are interested in meeting some more fellow MKE investors, feel free to PM me and I can share the details.
@Patrick Dittmer - Brew City Real Estate Investment Meetup is another good real estate group run by Rebecca Holmes.
Thank you for the shout out Scott--hope all is well in the self-storage and development world!!
Patrick, have you determined the areas you will invest and how you will be financing your buys?
Brew City REI is a very active private Facebook group of over 1500 local investors sharing local tips/advice, contractors, current events and deals. We plan meetups monthly and pop up events. These are posted here in BP as well as on the group page. I am also an active Milwaukee REIA member as well as planning on joining AASEW (Apartment Association of SE WI) which are also great groups.
I hope to see you at some of the Meetups around town. Good luck in your REI adventures!
I'm just up the road from you in the Appleton, WI area. Good luck!
Thanks, all, for your RE group mentions! I hope to have the opportunity to meet at one of these gatherings in the near future.
@Rebecca Holmes It's nice to e-meet you! I am narrowing down the field of neighborhoods of interest based upon what I have seen people smarter than me doing, but still very open-minded on location. Much research left to do. The tentative plan is to do at least one conventional mortgage for a SFH or Duplex and then, if possible (and the numbers work), an FHA into a tri/quad multi shortly thereafter. If the group meetings are posted here on BP, I'll be damned if you don't see me at one of them!
Hi Patrick---that sounds like a smart strategy. We do post the meetups in BP too and hope to see meet you at one of them live and in person :)
