Introduction- Hi from Michigan!

13 Replies

Just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself! I’m Louis, and have been lurking around BP for a while trying to soak up as much knowledge as possible. I’m in my mid-twenties, and live In the Southfield area. I became a proud homeowner as of 2 years ago. I’m ready to become involved and get my first investment property, and am looking forward to connecting with likeminded folks. Please feel free to say hi!

@Louis Phlips , I actually buy in Michigan because housing is much more expensive out here. I should (knock on wood) close on a SFH in Westland in about a week. I have worked with @Keith Jourdan , he works with a number of out-of-state investors and has been a great resource.

 @Keith Jourdan handles a triplex for me. Can vouch that he's legit and knows the area well.

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.
