Newbie from Portland, OR

6 Replies

Newbie here from Portland, OR. Looking into real estate investing to help subsidize FIRE from my profession as a physician. 

Heard of bigger pockets from other physician mentors and blogs such as WCI and passiveincomeMD.

Interested in flips and long term rentals and long distance, but open to learning about anything. 

Love to travel using points (been to 31+ countries) and multiple premium class products

Love to keep active; bouldering, snowboarding, martial arts, etc. 

Feel free to contact me anything!

Hi Khoa,

Welcome to BP!

If you’re looking close to home, there definite opportunities here in the Portland area and I think you’ll find we have a pretty great group of people helping out. 

Make sure you lean on your MD status-there are some special loan programs out there for doctors purchasing multiple properties. If you want more info, PM me and I’ll connect you with the right people!

Best of luck,

Mathew!
