New to Bigger Pockets and of course Real Estate Investing. I am graduating college next spring and my passion is investing buying, flipping, and selling. From reading other discussions I’ve learned it’s not possible to do so without any money or capital. At the beginning of the year I plan to get my real estate license and join a team so I can begin to save and earn some cash I can use for my first investment. I would love to begin networking and meeting investors in my area but I’m not sure how to. Unfortunately most events I’ve come across are held when I am at work and was just wondering if there were any recommendations on how I can meet investors and flippers in my area or anywhere.
Welcome to BiggerPockets! Truly nice to meet you. Good luck going forward in Florida!! 😁 Hope the best for you!! Good to have a plan. Becoming a RE agent can be rewarding!!
Welcome to BP and the rewarding world of real estate! Sounds like you have a great plan. Have you searched Meetup dot com for meetings? Also, there's a lot of folks in Orlando in here and you can start finding them. Have you gone to any open houses to get your feet wet and learn about pricing? That's a helpful thing to do and is usually on weekends.
I have another agent in my group in Orlando, too. Good luck in your endeavor and hope to hear from you soon! I'm down in Palm Beach County and getting my license was a terrific decision for me. So I hope you love that side of things, too.
Welcome to BiggerPockets Delandre and best of luck investing!
@Anthoney Hanks Thanks!
@Share Ross Thank you Share. I will definitely look into Meetup.com and no in an networking aspect only for fun. But from now on I will ask questions when I go. Thank you
