Hello BiggerPockets! I am just following the “what to do first at Bigger Pockets” step 3 and introducing myself. My name is James Zachary, I live in California (Bay Area), and I am looking to take the first steps into the exciting world of real estate investing by adding at least 2 single family rental properties to my portfolio this year. I hope to learning a lot from this site and it's members. Cheers!

Welcome James !

There are plenty of single family investors on here. I play in the commercial space and not the single family homes.

All the best.

Hey James!

Welcome to BP. I am a testament to how great this community is - I flipped my first home and bought my first cash flowing rental after some BP veterans helped me out with the numbers and details.

So read up, engage, ask questions and when a deal falls in your lap, post the numbers and details so we can give you some advice.

Happy investing,

Welcome to BP James. Thank you for pointing out that which is obvious to everyone but me – follow the damn steps! I never did. Why didn’t @Jon Holdman or @Jon Klaus or @Joshua Dorkin or @Glenn Espinosa or @Brandon Turner say something?? You guys - I guess if I want it done right, i have to do it myself...LOL:) Note to self - read the darn instructions next time
