First Post on BP - Introdcution

4 Replies

Hello BP community! My name is Austin and this is my first post on the forums. I wanted to use this first post to introduce myself. I work as an engineer by day and spend my free time crafting a RE side hustle. 

I've spent the last few months educating myself and am now motivated to start taking action. I've narrowed my investing interests to residential/commercial rentals as well as performing/non-performing notes. I'm looking to expand my network, so please feel free to connect!

My goal over the next two weeks is to continue posting to the forums with different questions I've encountered during the learning process and also providing value to others whenever I can.

Thank you to BP for providing this platform!! Looking forward to making the most out of it.


Hey Austin, welcome to the forums! I'd suggest always doing a search on the forums for the answer you're looking for before posting. Sounds like you've got some good goals in place...get after it bro! Godspeed!
