New to Real Estate Investing

11 Replies

Hey everyone!

I am brand new to real estate investing, have been reading/listening/asking questions over the last few weeks and am getting ready (with my business partner) to jump right in! I am located in Gulf Breeze, FL and am looking to initially start investing in the area. We have a got a lot of irons in the fire and cant wait to get started and learn more from the BP Community!

Currently we have one rental property that is doing quite well on AirBnb/ I have an extensive background in hospitality/hotels on the operations and finance side which has helped drive our rates and occupancy. 

Thanks and I am looking forward to learning from you all!

Welcome @Nick Murray !  The Pensacola/Gulf Breeze markets are great for investing!  Are you looking to do more short term rentals or also get into long term rentals?  There are a couple local meet-ups if you want to meet other local investors and we have a pretty open and helpful group of investors in town if you ever need help with something!

The Professional Investors Guild (PIG) has our monthly meeting tonight at 7 p.m. at the bay center if you want to join.  I believe the topic is wholesaling.  I'm heading out of town tomorrow morning and will be gone for the rest of the week but if you want to get together and talk local real estate later this month just shoot me a message!  

@Nick Murray  Nick welcome! Great to hear, I am over in Navarre, FL and I also currently own an Airbnb in the area that is doing very well. I would love to chat more and share our knowledge/experience with each other. Let me know if there is anything i can do for you :) 

@Charles Wisniewski thank you Charles! I would love to connect and discuss more. I am often in the Ft Walton area for work (about once every other week or so) but yes, let’s connect and talk!
