Hello @Curtis Bass I am also new at investing and is looking to invest in the Philadelphia area. We are from New York and knows very little about Philadelphia. I will like to talk.
Hey @Curtis Bass . I'm a Real Estate Agent who focuses on serving investors in the Philadelphia region (and beyond). I also have my own investment properties in the city, and would love to connect. Feel free to reach out to me.
Hi @Curtis Bass and @Rex Harris what type of investing were you looking to do? Many opportunities out here, despite a tight market. I think the market is better for rentals (think BRRRR method). I'm very familiar with Philly (I have rentals just finished a flip); let me know if you have any questions.
Welcome @Curtis Bass ! Check out some of the great real estate investor networking groups in our area. Meetup.com is a great way to find these events. Diversified Investors Group is one of the more prominent and definitely one I'd recommend. There are subgroups for different investing niches and areas. On meetup.com you'll also find quite a few more smaller ones, and even lots that are posted here on the Biggerpockets events page. If you are planning on investing in Plymouth Meeting, then you'll definitely want to attend the main DIG meeting in Ambler, where you'll definitely meet some key folks in that area.
Also some very helpful folks here on the local forum, agents, wholesalers, flippers, lenders attorneys etc.
Hi Curtis and everyone else who posted here. I'm completely new to real estate investing, so I am in the learning and networking stage. I am interested in doing rentals in Philadelphia down the road.
Welcome to the community.
Michael the first step to real estate is education. Work on developing your knowledge, put yourself out there and check out a place or two.
If you have any specific questions about the Philedelphia market, real estate jobs, different machines to invest, ect you can reach out to me.
My background was in engineering before going into real estate full-time and I enjoy working with new people. Even if you are years away from investing still start educating

Welcome. I'm real estate agent who primarily work with investors and I do 4 or 5 project a year myself. Philadelphia has market for different investment need. If you are looking for cash flow Northeast is good area to start looking for property, but you have to know your neighborhood. If you are looking to flip South Philly is good area. You need to know and keep current with the development in your market, like the new casino "Live" in South Philly. I have work with Harrisburg Investor who drive to Philly every Monday, his only day off, for over ten years. However, you don't need to spend over long time. The simple way is to do what I did when I first started investing, to treat your local real estate agents out for lunch or coffee and pick their brain. Small price to paid for years of knowledge and experience. You will be amazed how open and up front some agent can be.
Best of luck to everyone, Happy Holiday!
Yong, you free for lunch/coffee this friday?
I just bought 2 in s philly, love to connect.
