Hello my name is Shane Craig and I'm located in Huntington WV and Ashland Ky area. I have 4 rental properties ( 3 homes and 1 duplex) that I have obtained since 2015. I am also a real estate broker in Ky and real estate agent in Wv. I have listen to most of the podcasts however I haven't used the website and forms till now.  I'm excited to learn more about the site and recourses it offers. 

@Shane Craig welcome to BP, I am located in Northern Virginia. Are your duplexes located in West Virginia? If they are I would be interested in getting together with you to explore the duplex purchase opportunities in that area. 

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.
