First time investor in the Atlanta market.

Hello all,

I am looking to purchase my first rental property in Atlanta Georgia. I am still in the 'research" phase. Currently I am looking at potential areas that I would like to buy in along with researching lenders and property managers. What would be some advise for someone who is new and taking the plunge in purchasing their first rental property? 



Hi @Scott Chapman and welcome to BiggerPockets!

I would suggest you start by talking to one or two solid lenders to determine what kind of financing you qualify for, how much you can borrow, and what the cost will be. That will dictate the kind of properties you need to invest in, which will influence where you should look.
