Hi Bigger Pockets World!
My name is Mike and I am completely new to this 'world' and very excited to have found. Like many others, I am starting out with the stereotypical path: Have a Fiance, Bought a Personal Home (and a Cool Dog) then Life was fantastic!
Until... I read Rich Dad Poor Dad and woke up from my day dream! Now I want to learn as much as I can and get my hands into this game. Owning a home is fun but it isn't as fun when I am paying my own rent.
So, Does anyone here have any place for a VERY new, rookie real estate guy to start? Living in MA but traveling to all New England and New York (Upstate) areas often for work; figured to may be a way to know these markets? But honestly I am not sure what I am looking at to evaluate the market/neighborhoods.
Anyways happy to be here and excited to sponge up some knowledge!
My advice, save.
If you have ANY debt aside from your mortgage, pay it off IMMEDIATELY!
Sounds like you don't have kids yet, if you don't, dump the SFR and buy a multi-fam, house hack it(google Brandon Turner House Hack if you don't know what that is);
repeat, repeat, repeat.
Spend 3-5 years doing this, then you will be free and will have enough to buy/live whereever you want.
