@Ashley Mutawakkil - Morning! Congrats on the decision to pursue REI. Are you looking to invest in Florida from Michigan, or move to Florida?
Hi @Ashley Mutawakkil . I currently work the Miami South FL area as a Real Estate Broker and also invest personally in the local market. Deals are hard to find but they do exist. Any questions or assistance you need I am always available.
Jack V. Ospina, Broker in Florida (#BK3253158)
There are several meet ups in SE MIchigan.
The closest to you I think would be:
Here is the link to all the REICs in Michigan.
Thanks for replies all! I actually live in Miami. Not sure why it had Michigan listed under my profile. Hey Jack I will definitely reach out this weekend.
@Ashley Mutawakkil Congrats on your decision to pursue financial freedom! My suggestion would also be to visit local REIA's in all three counties ( Palm Beach, Dade, Broward ). There are a few meetup groups on Meetup.com that are worth visiting also.
You may run into investors that have deals in all three counties. Also, start driving neighborhoods to get a feel for where you would like to invest and the types of multi-family units you would like to buy. You may run across abandoned or vacant property, for sale by owner, etc. You can call them up. Ask questions, etc to get your feet wet. Real estate is a contact sport. You can not do it from behind the screen. You physically need to be out there networking and talking to people constantly. That's how I find my deals. It is only competitive when you are just starting out or are not proactive. However, once you get out there enough and consistently. Deals may find a way of getting to you. Good luck!
Check out the what's brewing event meetup next week.
@Luis Barberi I will be there!
