Hello BP Community!

I'm a college student looking to accelerate my journey into real estate investing. I have accrued some knowledge from the BP podcasts and forums but I know I need to work on networking since I am still a bit of an introvert. My short term goals in real estate are to build a network of honest hardworking people and start a rental portfolio here in Birmingham. My Long Term goals are to reach financial independence level 1 by 30 through SFR & MFR. I also want to help the younger generation's in poverty-stricken areas see the insane benefits of real estate investing.

Thank you for the warm welcome! I love your guide on grading neighborhoods in Birmingham, it has been very useful for me these last few months. 

 glad you liked it. I also have one for Cleveland, Ohio and am working on ones for 

  • Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Kansas City, Missouri
  • Memphis, Tennessee 

So keep an eye out for them if any of those markets are of interest to you.

Great time to be in Birmingham!    Loving East lake and Ensley right now..    I believe that there is great opportunity for income and capital appreciation. 

Definitely agree with you! The so-called war zones everyone was avoiding 5 years ago have really been picking up traction lately. Markets are always evolving, one of the many things I love about Real Estate.
