Saver looking to start investing Dumont, NJ

Hi everyone,

Its exciting for me to join BiggerPockets, and see what I can learn from other users and hopefully one day have a good knowledge base to help others one day as well.

I've been saving aggressively from what has been until shortly rather low paying jobs.  I don't want to rush but at the same time I want to get investing earlier than later.  At this point I can't afford much but I have kept looking, and for the most part this means properties not close to home in Bergen County New Jersey, but the future may always change.



Hi James, welcome to BP. One of the things I always say to anyone interested in investing is to know your numbers. The great thing about numbers is if the math works it works!  It’s honest and straight forward. 

Your current buying power might be low but that’s okay. As long as you start and you can see your vision and your goal in your mind you can achieve your end desire.
