New to it all. Here’s how I am preparing for my 1st deal.

3 Replies

Hi BP!

I am new to investing and currently educating myself while I prepare for my first deal. I am reading from the BP top 20 list of books, analyzing deals, and attending events. I plan on joining a local REIA (I've heard it's a good idea). I am currently finishing renovations on my primary residence so I can apply for a HELOC to facilitate my first deal. That's where I am.

I’m grateful for BP and everyone who contributes. I live in the Tampa Bay Area. If you have any “must do’s” for a beginner, please send them my way. If I can be of help to anyone, let me know.
