Good morning everyone,
I am new to this app and was wondering if I could connect with anyone in the Louisville, KY area. I currently work for the USDA.
Welcome to BP! What kind of investing are you interested in? Plug in and start connecting, great site to network!
@Jim Wilcox thank you Jim. I am going to learn as much as possible. Do you invest in Louisville?
@David D'Errico thank you. Also what are pretty cool areas to invest in within Louisville. I have been reading and learning.
Welcome Latravis! I too am new to BP. Reading throughout the forum and developing you team is the best way to start out.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the USDA provide govt backed mortgages? You might have an inside track there.
@Michael O'Connell hello Mike. Yes, they have some loans but the govt be acting weird for ppl who try to buy. I will look deeper into it. Do you know whether anyone invest on the west end of Louisville
lots of people invest in the west end. It's the most affordable area to start out, but comes with tons of headaches. It depends on your tolerance level for being a landlord. Personally, I would like REI to be as passive as possible. You get that by screening your tenants well and hiring a PM company.
Read the book , " landlord nightmares". It was written by a west end investor years ago. I would try Carmichaels books. I doubt that a national chain would carry it.
Someone I know invests in the west end and says it's been great. Low cost to purchase and it all comes down to tenant screening. He has had some tenants in there for 4-6 years and when he does have vacancy they rent right away. I sure there are headaches like with anywhere maybe more not sure.
@Latravis Brazil I do not invest in the Louisville area. I invest in markets around Lexington. However, there are many on this site that are directly working that area of KY. Keep learning and taking action and you will do fine.
it sounds great guys. Joining this site makes me smart.
Welcome to BP @Latravis Brazil . Im shocked to see someone else with the last name Brazil on here.
@Russell Brazil hehe Russell I promise you. This is a shock. I may have to tell my mom about this. Everyone I meet always ask me if I am the Brazil lol
Welcome to Bigger Pockets. Make sure to check out all the informative podcasts.
@Mark Nolan thank you Mark
@David D'Errico I have a property available in the west end. Could you refer me to your friend who invests there?
