Retired Army Officer, Real Estate Appraiser, Restarting Investing

3 Replies

Hello Big Pockets. I am Dave, A retired Army Officer. NC Certified Residential Appraiser. Degrees in finance and economics... blah blah blah!!! I have lived in Fayetteville NC for more then 20 years. I have been a real estate appraiser for 5 years. And inadvertently have been a real estate investor, do to being in the service. Currently have two rental properties that I solely own. And I am looking to use the BRRRR methodology on the properties. To generate the cash that I need to start funding more deals. I look forward to learning and being apart of this community.


Welcome to the BP community, David! Now you have me wondering how many homes you may have appraised for me. Glad to see that you are getting into the REI game with the plethora of knowledge you have to offer. Would love to connect and grab coffee sometime soon!

Once again, welcome! Be sure to utilize the resources your Pro Membership offers.

Welcome @David Hargitt  

BRRRR works well in Fayetteville, certainly with some tradeoffs, but a very forgiving market to learn in.

I've put out quite a bit of content about BRRRR on this site over the last ~5 years and much of my experience is in Fayetteville, hopefully some of it can be useful to you!

This is a good community to be part of, welcome!
