New to the area - Johnson City NY

7 Replies

Lots of firsts here for me. I have been a browsing member of BP for a while, but this is my first post. I just moved here to Johnson City NY from the west coast. And I have been a renter all my life, and I am buying my first home at the age of... over 40. I hope it's not too late to begin my RE investing career.

I am looking to connect with people here on BP in the area. Are meetups still a thing?

Welcome to the site Andrew! Happy to have you here. Congrats on your move to Johnson City! And don't worry: as I am sure many people could attest to, it's never too late to begin your REI journey. If you want a tree, the two best options to plant it was 20 years ago, or today - so why not start today.

I definitely recommend searching for local/virtual meetups by your area - check around the forums if there is one! Wishing you the best of luck moving forward.  Cheers

Andrew, glad you joined!

 

Welcome.  You are not too old to start. There is no day like today.  Good luck with your real estate adventures.   Cost of real estate in JC is probally alot cheaper than what you are used to out west.
