My name is Michael Ciesielski and I am new to Bigger Pockets. I work a full time job in Flint, Michigan and am looking to get started in rental properties. I currently own a single family house (3 bed 2 bath) in Flint about a mile from where I work; I bought the house using a home loan assistance program through work so I am not allowed to rent out any of the spare bedrooms (due to the contract with my work) for the next five years.
I am looking for advice on where a good place to get started and if anyone has suggestions of rental property managing companies to look into.
Hello! @Michael Ciesielski
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 have other blogs that may be helpful here on BP in my personal blog that you can check out. Good Luck :)
