Getting started in Colorado Springs & Denver

8 Replies

Hello BiggerPockets! I started getting into RE investing over the past 6 months (have a 4 unit, SFR, and am closing on sober living facility). Focusing on Colorado Springs and a little on Denver.

Primarily looking for buy and hold multifamily properties and just launched my first direct mail campaign.

I haven’t done as good of a job of networking as I should. While I’m an experienced businessman, I definitely need to connect with experienced people in real estate 

This is such a great community. Looking forward to being a part of it!

Welcome to the forums Leo, I'm intrigued by the idea of a sober living facility, is that in The Springs or Denver?

 Thanks @Daniel Haberkost!  It's in Denver.  From what I gather, there is definitely a need in the Springs. I'm also not the operator.  Purchasing the property and renting it back under an extended lease.

 

Hi Leo,

I am a real estate agent and flipper in the Denver metro area. I would love to hear more about the sober living projects. I had a friend back in the day that got involved in sober living and found it to be lucrative as well as spiritually uplifting. 

Hi, welcome.  

I've been in RE for two years and I primarily invest in the East Coast for buy and holds but I have great contacts with investor friendly realtors and lenders out in Colorado Springs.  Please reach out if you're looking for 

Welcome. This is a great place to be.  I vaguely remember one of the podcasts had a guest that invested in group homes. It appears to be a fairly secure niche.  Most group homes have some kind of funding or government grants to operate.
