Hello, newbie investor here

Hi, my name is Yuan and I'm from China. I went to U-Penn for graduate school and has been a data analyst since graduation. Recently just moved to Halifax, NS and looking to start my real estate journey with a owner occupied multiunit. 

First lesson learned this weekend: if you see a beautiful property even during a weekend, make an timely offer on the same day or some other people will beat you to it...

Maybe pretty funny as I know some of you might laugh about this fact being so obvious..

Hi Juan

Great to see more people joining BP around me. Unfortunately that's the case with the market right now, was this the 3 unit on Barrington? 

Contact charlieatie.com a local realtor and has been a great help.

Good luck on your journey and welcome to Halifax!
