New To Real Estate Investing

3 Replies

New to REI. Willing to learn and continuing to learn as I move forward. Located in Somerset, NJ. Came across Bigger Pockets yesterday while looking into the scheme's of seminars. Great informative site so far. Looking for like minded people who would like to learn with me and can help each other grow in this business. Like I said, I'm new to this so don't know much of anything but trying to learn. My goal in REI is to make passive income until I can transition real estate into a full time job. If anyone can point me in the right direction so I can get my future started on the right foot would be great! Thank you for taking the time out to read this post and allowing me to introduce myself.
@Jermaine Kelly Welcome Jermaine. I’m also new(ish) to REI. BP is a great resource for you. I definitely recommend posting and connecting with people in the forums. You‘ll be able to connect wIth people in your area too So many have a lot of good advice and super helpful. Also the podcasts are excellent. There’s a “Ultimate Beginners Guide” on That also is a great place to start. Welcome again!

Hello! @Jermaine Kelly

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 :)
