New to bigger pockets

7 Replies

Hello everyone!

My name is Chad I am a father two kids a boy and girl and am active duty Army stationed at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs. I am new to real estate investing trying to build my capital and my portfolio.

I have helped friends and family members fix and flip homes and now I want to get into myself. I know how to do a lot of the repairs myself and am very motivated to begin.

I also want to start wholesaling around this area to gain capital so I can afford to fix and flip homes and eventually start getting long term rentals. I have been finding a lot of good deals for fixer uppers around here to make a good profit, but can’t do it myself yet.

Hello, @Chad Hoober  Welcome to BP. It seems like a simple thing but reaching out in BiggerPockets about getting started as a real estate investor is a great first step. Congratulations and I wish you a ton of success.

Welcome to Bigger Pockets! Thanks for connecting. Let me know how I can help. I'm happy to have you come by my office sometime if you'd like to meet in person.

Why can't you do it yourself yet?
