Do you need Assistance in Indianapolis?

4 Replies

I will save the details of my real estate experience for personal conversations. If you care to know just ask and we can get into that later.

I joined Bigger Pockets over a year ago and began reading every post I could to help find my niche. This is a very helpful website, by the way, with an overwhelming amount of information and assistance from the investing population and I thank you for that. Josh D. I am not sure if this is what you envisioned but it is definitely a top notch investment community. During this past year I also took some time to obtain my real estate license in the state of Indiana. That said, I have a passion for real estate and want to build a very successful real estate empire but as they say “Rome wasn’t built in a day�, but I will get there I have no doubt about that!

I am currently working full-time with a multi-family development / management company which is my steady paycheck that pays the bills. I also work part-time for a real estate broker listing and selling residential properties. Although I made a strong push to meet local investors (thanks to those of you who took the time to meet with me) and was gung ho to buy my first property, I also wanted to list and sell homes to families. Getting started in two new ventures plus working full-time became a drain and took time away from my family. I realize now is the time to buy cheap and hold but it is not the right time for me.

During my reading of Bigger Pockets forum posts I have not only learned about investing for my own personal profit but I have also read many posts regarding realtors and their lack of investment knowledge and follow through of requests. To all you investors out there who are looking to buy and sell properties in the Central Indiana market please look me up. Tell me about your personal experiences here and how I can help make your investment strategies work to their utmost potential. Don’t use and abuse me as a real estate “agent� but look to me as a real estate “consultant�. I would love to help with all your real estate investing needs and if I don’t have the answer I will work diligently to find someone who does.

Corey, sorry to hear that you are abandoning your plan to purchase and hold rental properties. Your correct that now is the time to buy and it won't last forever. If you network with the right people it really is not difficult and you should easily be able to do it in your spare time.

As a real estate agent, you should concentrate on retail sales to make the most commission for the least amount of work. Unfortunately the retail market is a bit slow at the present time. To be a great asset to the investor, it takes a lot of grunt work with small rewards. It takes a lot of volume to make up for the small returns, so it is labor intensive.With your other job, I'm not sure you have the time or motivation to succeed as a real estate agent. Perhaps it is time to reevaluate your goals. :D Good luck, Jim
