My name is Justin and I'm new to REI and BP. My family and I relocated to the Mankato area about a year ago and we are eager to find opportunities both in and around the smaller communities south of the Minneapolis area as well as the Twin Cities themselves. I'm looking forward to networking with other investors and learning as much as I can. Hope that you are having a productive day.
Hi Justin, welcome to BP!
My advice is to stay local, preferably within 5-10 miles from your house, and to avoid investing in Minneapolis for the time being due to recent ordinances - makes it undesirable to be a landlord.
@Tim Swierczek Thank you for the tip
@Pavel U. Thank you!
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
@Justin Windham thank you
@Armin Nazarinia thank you.
