Hello Everyone. Akron ohio introduction!

18 Replies

Hello!

I have been reading and listening to podcasts for about a month now after reading rich dad poor dad. A very unoriginal intro, I know. I live in Akron Ohio (44301), 25 years old and married with no kids yet. I work 60 hours a week and want to build $2000-4000 in passive income to start with. Once I reach that point I may focus on investing full time and work towards syndication of larger multifamily/building portfolio.

I plan on starting by BRRRRing single family homes and or small multifamily homes in Akron. 

Thank you anyone who says hello or gives advice! 

Thank you B.P!

Welcome, @Nicolas Ak! Sounds like a solid plan. I’m a fellow Akronite and just completed my first BRRRR in July. My contractor for the job was phenomenal! I’d be glad to share his contact info. Let’s connect. 


All the best in your endeavors!

I'm going to get the event posted tomorrow.

Welcome to BP @Nicolas Ake ! Wow, 60 hours of work a week and you are looking to BRRR, great work ethic! That's an awesome goal, as well! If you are looking for passive income, turnkey may be a great option for you while you are working.

I am a bit biased about the turnkey method, but I like to throw it out as an option when I see it's appropriate. Having a few turnkey properties doesn't mean that you can't BRRR when you have more time, it just means that you have that passive income without using too much of your time and energy.

Best wishes!
