Newbie intro, interested in learning a lot

4 Replies

Hello, I am Daniel and currently live in Cape May, NJ. I am new to real estate investing and am here hoping to gather knowledge. I am currently active duty and do not plan to begin purchasing for awhile, but figured it wouldn't hurt to start learning now. Thank you for any advice you provide and I look forward to spending more time reading in the forums.

Welcome, @Daniel Warren ! So glad you found Bigger Pockets and are planning to put in the time to learn about real estate now. If you haven't already, be sure to plug into the podcast - it's been a wealth of education and a huge confidence builder as me and my husband have pursued REI and built our portfolio. Like you, we lurked in the forums and listened to podcasts for a few years before making the leap.

A few more things that may be helpful to you here on the Bigger Pockets website:

You can set up keyword alerts so anytime someone posts about a market you're interested in, you'll be notified. That could be a great way to find and stay engaged with local investors and opportunities. http://www.biggerpockets.com/alerts

You can also search for other investors in that area and follow their journey on Bigger Pockets here: https://www.biggerpockets.com/search/users

Best of luck to you and thank you for your service!
