Hi! I've posted on Biggerpockets previously asking for deal analysis around Baltimore but haven't introduced myself on this forum yet. I'm a full-time software developer, husband, father of two small kids, and volunteer firefighter.
I want to get into real estate for the financial freedom. I have some money invested in crowdfunded apps like Fundrise. But being a non-accredited investor limits my options with that so I'm looking to start doing long term buy and holds or possibly find a syndicator that works with sophisticated investors. I've been keeping an eye on 2-4 plexes around Baltimore to house hack, but having two kids limits my options a bit so we haven't found anything yet.
Ideally I'd be able to find a remote job and house hack in other locales, but until that time we will be sticking to Baltimore.
I look forward to talking with everyone!
Welcome to Biggerpockets and good luck going forward! It is nice to meet you. Congratulation on the family. I am also a software developer by day. Just keep up the great work and you will eventually find the deal for you.
Thanks @Anthoney Hanks !
@Ken Swearengen that’s exactly what I did. I bought a 4-Plex in a different state and moved into it. I’m a software engineer and now work remotely.
I love working remotely, and I love not having to commute.
@Billy Linn Good to know someone else who has tread the path. How did you approach the remote work with your company before the move? Or did you move and then just find a remote role?
Welcome! As others have said, the Baltimore REI community is very active and welcoming (both on BP and In Real Life). Don't hesitate to ask questions. Good luck!

Even though you were here before :D))
Good Luck with your investments.
