Hello,my name is Derek Nickol and I am from the York Pennsylvania area, I am a home inspector by trade with a history in commercial and residential building/remodeling. I am using all of my  free time right now , every minute left after work and being  a father to  an amazing 10 month old son, to read,study and learn as much as i can about real estate investing, rental properties in particular, and my goal is to purchase my first property in the next 90 days.

@Derek Nickol welcome to BP.  Your background should be a big help. I would caution you however that a goal to do a deal in 90 days may lean you to be a motivated buyer. It is good to have aggressive goals but don't let it lead you to trying to force a bad deal to work.
