New Investor from DFW

5 Replies

Hey Everyone!

I'm new to real estate investing and have been actively researching and gathering as much knowledge as possible for the last couple of months. I'm currently a digital marketing analyst in the hospitality industry, I really enjoy my job and marketing strategy in general but love the possibilities that investing in real estate could provide for me and my family.

I have a decent idea of what I'm looking for but trying to figure out the first steps to get started. I want to start with small multifamily property, but would also consider single family to start with. Currently I'm looking within the DFW market but due to current prices I'm considering looking elsewhere. 

I'm looking forward to engaging with new people, contributing anyway that I can to this community (albeit with limited knowledge as of now), as well as continuing my REI education.

Hi Payne, 

Welcome to BP! I would definitely recommend getting connected in your local investor community. That's a great place to get really valuable information on the local markets. Depending on the area of DFW you are in, you may see if the prices make sense to try to find a multifamily to live in. If not, I would look outside of the DFW area. There area lot of great places in Texas to invest and other states that are close enough to Texas to make sense. If you are interested in the OKC metro area, I would be happy to answer any questions that you may have about it.
