I'm semi-retiring and need to buy properties with cash for buy and hold in the Phoenix area. Can anyone help me get started?
Is there any way you can provide the forums with a little more information? Like, what are you looking to do? Are you looing to be an investor, providing only the money to someone who is well versed in real estate? Or are you looking to buy properties to hold so that you yourself can manage them? Are you looking to buy them yourself and then hire out a property management company to handle the day-to-day operations?
In order for someone to provide you with some worthwhile guidance, it's best that we know precisely what you're looking to do. I don't want to go on and on about reading the right books about being a landlord if you're only looking to be an investor. I also don't want to go on and on about finding the right property management company when you're only interested in, say, finding deals.
You're looking to buy properties with cash. Excellent. You want to hold them. Also excellent. Then what? Are you looking to rent them out, lease them, owner finance? Are you looking to do this, or hire someone else? How much experience do you have in real estate?
I hope these things will give you an idea on what to say to give some potential help some clarification. Last thing you want is someone who has valuable information skipping over your post because they can't see how their knowledge can apply.
