New Member Introduction

5 Replies

Hello All,

My name is Michael Klaus and I am a new member! I am eager to learn about the great big world of real estate. My wife and I purchased our first home this past April in Grand Rapids, and are thinking about looking into rental properties next! Are there specific forum's for the Grand Rapids, MI Area?

Looking forward to being member of this great 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.

Discounts on some products and services are offered to BP members: https://www.biggerpockets.com/perks/pro

If you haven’t been to it already, you might want to check out the BP blog: https://www.biggerpockets.com/renewsblog/

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

Welcome to BP! I am not sure the specific forums but you can set up keyword alerts and there are in person meetups on the 2nd Monday and 3rd Wednesday of each month at Buffalo Wild Wings at 6. The Monday one is more general and the Wednesday one is more focused on larger multifamily.

@Michael Klaus - Welcome to BP! There are a few geographic specific forums that you can find if you just type Grand Rapids into the search bar. Setting up a keyword alert will also help you identify new forums created that are talking about Grand Rapids.

BP has a wealth of knowledge on most strategies and niches - so if you need help getting pointed in the right direction, let me know! 

Good Luck!

@Chris Winslow Do we have to sign up to go to the meet ups at Buffalo Wild Wings? Also which location do these meet ups occur at. Thanks in advance my friend.
