Hi BP! 

My name is Mark Hall, I am 26 years old and a Virtual Reality developer. 

The main goal for my wife and I is to achieve financial freedom. I am looking to connect with experienced investors in Utah County and looking to invest around Provo, Orem, Springville, and Mapleton. I have some money saved up and am looking to get into a deal this summer but I don't have much of a background in real estate so I am trying to learn everything that I can and start building my team.

I'm excited to meet the community and start working!

Hi Mark,

Welcome! Highly recommend you get out to your local REIAs and MeetUps. Quick Google search showed a few in your area. That's the best way to meet local investors. I've found the most valuable time at these things is actually after the session closes, when general networking time opens up. Just my opinion.

Welcome @Mark M. Hall ! I'm not in Utah County but I am in Utah. What type of 'deal' are you looking to get into this summer...rental, flip, house hack? Good luck and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. 

Hey @Taylor L, I took your advice and I found a local Provo Meetup thanks! 

Hey @CalebRigby my end goal is passive income so I would love to get into a rental/house hacking using either the money I have saved up or my credit to get into but I also understand the value of doing flips to raise the capital to afford the rentals so I would love to pick your brain about how you do flips 

Welcome to BiggerPockets Mark. I hope the community serves you well and you also get your chance to help out as well. Keep learning as much as possible. Read the forums, buy books, attend REIA meetings etc. Do anything you can to increase your RE knowledge before getting ready to find and execute a deal.

Good Luck!

@Mark M. Hall
