Newb from Evansville IN ready to get going

12 Replies

So i just moved to Indiana a few weeks ago from California and going to pursue my dream of becoming a RE investor. Not really sure where to start but we just sold our house so I have some capital to get started, just want to make sure I make sound choices when starting so I decided to join BP as a resource to make connections and maybe even find my first deal. I have some capital to start with and looking to acquire my first deal by the end of the year. I’m interested in single family and multi family, but I’m open to anything that shows potential. I’m also looking to fix and flip initially but hoping to move to a buy and hold strategy in the long term. Thanks for reading and I look forward to learning from and meeting you (virtually or in person).

Greeting Jose and Welcome! I'm in Bloomington and I'm sure you will find the pace of life here in the Midwest a lot nicer than CA. Best of luck to u and I hope to see you around.

Welcome Jose! This Link might help you with which geographical area(s) you may want to focus on your investments on (although more relevant for rentals than flips)!

Welcome! I'm in Bloomington and know some folks who also invest in Evansville. They are not on BP but you can look up Kingdom Properties. I am sure they would be willing to chat with you!

@Jose Trevino welcome to BP Evanville! My wife and I are REI in the city as well. Would love to meet up and talk about all things Evansville. Let me know if you’d like to get together! Cheers!


I actually just graduated from IU and was looking to invest in the area around Bloomington, IN. Anyone active on this thread that I can take out for coffee to have a chat? I'll be in town this weekend, let me know!
