Hi everybody! I'm new to real estate investments and I'm keen to learn the trade a bit better. I like the idea of long-term investments in residential properties. I also like the idea of flipping houses, but I have no experience and little time.

I used to work in web marketing and for the last 6 years I’ve been working in finance.If there is anyone seeking websites / marketing materials / financial plans, let me know! I’d be interested in trading my skills in order to learn the real estate trade a bit better.

I’m interested in investing near my residence, but the prices are very high. I’m contemplating Fort Lauderdale because I have an acquaintance that does real estate investing there.

Nice to meet you all!
