I am a new investor who has been living in Florida all of his life. Spent the last 6 years finishing school and starting a career in Orlando. I am now beginning to make the transition to Atlanta for work which should take place over the next 1-2 months. I've been trying to secure wholesale deals locally while also saving for a multi-family to house hack next year. I have a few questions.
- What are some of the best real estate groups to be apart of in and around Atlanta? Looks like Atlanta REIA is pretty popular.
- Any particular areas I should be looking at for a good house hack? I'm currently thinking Smyrna, Marietta, and various parts of NW Atlanta might be best for me. I've seen a few properties in Austell, heard it isn't the greatest place to be.
- *unrelated to real estate* But if anyone can suggest some good apartments or condos in Smyrna, i'd greatly appreciate that too :)
I appreciate any tips or tricks about Atlanta you all could provide me with. Hoping to learn the area before I get there so I can hit the ground running. If anyone would like to potentially connect in person and do some business together, feel free to reach out!
I recommend joining www.gareia.com . They offer great training and networking for new investors. Good luck and let me know if I can be of assistance.
Check the meet up section. There's a group of BP people that meet up in Sandy Springs once a month at no charge
Atlanta REIA, GA REIA, and don't count out organizations like BOMA, IREM and local Chambers of Commerce's, if you can get in. I am back in school, so student memberships is a way for me to go. Start here in BP and build up an Atlanta network from ground up.
Welcome to Atlanta! I think you are right on the money with Marietta. Check out this post:
Welcome to Atlanta Cimmeron! It's a great market to invest here. If you are looking to invest in Multifamily check out The Atlanta Apartment Association as well. Also aside from BP Linked has some great group to join and network in.
