My introduction from NC

14 Replies

Hi, My name is Beth Radigan, from Kill Devil Hills, NC. For those of you not familiar with my area, that’s the Outer banks, or where Wilbur/Orville Wright first flew their airplane!

I’m a stay at home mom with a daughter off to college and a need to find my own way. Real Estate & the stock market have always intrigued me, so I have been reading and watching videos for a few weeks. I listened to Anson Young’s, Finding and Funding Great Deals and ending up on Bigger Pockets, and I am very thankful I landed here.

I have not set up my business yet as I don’t feel comfortable approaching anyone until I have more knowledge.

I have no real estate experience, other than researching when we bought our own home and sold our 2nd home, so I guess I have a little. I’m a sucker for details and don’t mind hard work.

I am very interested in learning all I can about flipping, wholesaling, and tax liens. Anyone looking to share their knowledge in exchange for an internship, let me know. I don’t mind learning on the job.

I’m not sure what I can contribute at the moment, but I promise to not be a lurker!!

Good luck & Good Selling!

Hi Beth. Check out our group on Facebook, we will be having local REI meetups starting back up in May in Kill Devil Hills. We have about 70 members and we meet up once a month in the Kill Devil Hills or Nags Head area at coffee shops or local businesses. You can find us be searching Outer Banks Real Estate Investors. It is a great place to learn and meet other local investors. Looking forward to meeting you.

@Elizabeth W Radigan Welcome! Simply browsing the forums and reading threads will get you off to a great start. There's TONS of valuable information here aggregated from all over the country and beyond.

Ask questions, absorb information, and make a plan for yourself. Good luck!

Hi Bryan,

That is what I have been doing for a week now! Putting together a plan to buy my first property, I hope, within the next 90 days, as I continue to learn and grow.  

Everyone has been very helpful! I love this community!!

Welcome to Bigger Pockets!

This is a great place to learn and network. A lot of forum members are very knowledgeable in their respective fields related to real estate investing, whether that is real estate sales, wholesaling, flipping, rentals, lending, self-directed IRA and Solo 401k investing, or tax and legal guidance.

The site has quite a few tools that can be helpful for new members. I like the search features: https://www.biggerpockets.com/search

Alerts can be really helpful too: http://www.biggerpockets.com/alerts

There are a few self-contained guides that you can access here: https://www.biggerpockets.com/guides

If you do join us for a meet up, I usually bring about 20 different REI books to lend out to the participants so they can take them home and read them. You are welcome to borrow any that look interesting. Good luck!
