Hello, I am pretty new to real estate and am looking to find a deal for an owner occupied duplex. My goal is to build a portfolio of multi unit properties. What are some good things to do to get started in the area? Do any meet ups exist in the Pittsburgh area for real estate? I have come across the REIA so far.
@Justin DAlessandro There are a few. Also some Pittsburgh ‘neighborhood’ real estate meet ups. What area of Pittsburgh do you live? Which areas are you targeting your search?
Sent you a message with some help to get you started! Feel free to reach out if you need anything
Thank you guys for your responses. Jason- targeting northside, Bloomfield, friendship right now. I live in shadyside currently. I’ve heard that Brighton heights/observatory hill would be nice alternatives outside the city
@Justin DAlessandro Check out Alex Deacon's meetups. I posted the links below. Both are free and very informative/helpful.
Justin, try ACRE of Pittsburgh. They’re a wonderful group. Visit the website:
And you may call Ed Benis. His number is on the website.
@Justin DAlessandro I manage a small South Hills meetup thats part of the Pittsburgh REIA. You are welcome to attend. Usually the 4th Thursday of each month, but I post the events on here.
The Pittsburgh REIA has tons of subgroups for whatever you are looking to do.
House Hacking is a great way to start! It's the way I started and the way a lot of people in the group started/or are trying to get started. So there'd be some good knowledge in the room for you if you'd like to attend.
Hey Justin! What is your strategy for finding these multi's?
