I am a new real estate investor from Milwaukee just getting onto the scene. I'm 25 with a full time job and family history of multi-family rentals in the Eau Claire/Chippewa/Altoona area of Wisconsin. I have been viewing properties recently and will be putting an offer down in the greater Milwaukee area!
The site and podcasts have been super helpful so far!

Hi Adam, I just bought a turnkey rental in Milwaukee last week. Welcome to BP.
Welcome to the Bigger Pockets community-be sure to check out all the awesome BP blogs under “Learn.”
Thanks for the welcome everyone.
@Mark Nolan I will definitely be sure to do that!
A big welcome to you!
I grew up in Milwaukee and spent a year in college at Eau Claire. Both great rental areas! What areas of EC are you invested?
Welcome! I'm in Eau Claire. I don't know much about the Milwaukee market but if you ever wanted to know more about the Minneapolis-St. Paul market, I'd be happy to do some research for you.
You're welcome, Adam! See you around the site!
Welcome from West Bend
Welcome @Adam Kozuch
sounds like you are getting an early jump on real estate investing, good move. Best wishes sir!
Welcome to BP Adam!
Welcome to BP. Your picture looks not a day over 24! Do you still dress that sharply?!
But seriously, what areas of Milwaukee are you looking at? What type of properties? SFH, Multis, etc.
@Dave Carpenter I have my mother to thank for that photo.
I was originally looking at properties in the lower east side, riverwest, and UWM area but I couldn't find anything that made sense from a numbers perspective. I broadened my search and found some better properties in Waukesha, Bay View, and other cities just outside Milwaukee.
I am looking to get into Multifamily to start. My first deal is likely going to be FHA loan, and I'm hoping to go bigger than 4 units once I get a foothold.
@Adam Kozuch have you given any thought to the western suburbs like West Allis?
Numbers aren't quite what they were a few years ago when you could get a 3/3 for 100k ready to rent but the numbers still seem to be pretty solid.
If you have any rehab experience and aren't afraid of ones that need a little work west Allis can be very profitable.
