Hey Upstate! Looking to connect.

49 Replies

I'd like to introduce myself to this forum and see what kind of opportunities are out there. I am 21 year old currently living in Saratoga Springs and will be starting my final year of college this fall at Binghamton University. I study computer/data science with a concentration in geographical data. 

Over the past year I have become obsessed with REI, from flipping to short-term/long-term rentals- you name it. Although I've spent countless hours on the forums and listening to BP Podcast, I have no real experience in the business.

I'd love to connect with anyone involved or just interested in REI in Upstate New York and talk about some real estate. I also have an interest in the rehab/construction/budgeting side of things as well.

Thanks

Hi Colton, I am just south of Rochester and also interested in the same but have not yet purchased anything. If you haven't listened yet the Podcast "Real Estate Rookie " host, Ashley does a lot of work out of Buffalo, its a great Podcast. There is also a local group that has a zoom meeting, PM me if interested.

 

We're here in Niagara, Erie & Orleans counties.

Geology Rocks

BUT

Geography's where it's at !!!

Hi! I'm looking to connect as well.. outside of work there isn't many people to talk about RE and I really love to talk and learn about it! @Jim Bice what's the local group? I'd like to be part of it too.

I just bought my first house-hack but I'm pretty new to this too!

Thanks!

Hi @Colton Hart , glad I found this post! I'm from Rochester area and am also a complete newbie. I'd love to connect and talk about entry strategies as I'm still figuring out how to go about my first property purchase. I'm fascinated with all the different ways to go about REI, especially house hacking and the BRRRR method.

It’s cool that you’ve found interest in real estate investing even before finishing college!

Hi Colton!

I am also in the Saratoga Springs area!

I have been following BP for a while now but never really jumped in to connect!

I too am looking to start a life in real estate with interest in the construction part of flips!

Following this post to connect with more local people who have found success in the upstate area (Saratoga and lower Washington county)

HI all ... I'm in the Albany, NY area looking to connect as well.   Sounds like there are more active BP members in the area than I had noticed prior.   Would love to chat.   I would be willing to host a Zoom intro call if there are others who are interested.  At the very least to meet and talk about aspirations and challenges starting out.  Let it evolve from there.   I'm new as well ... currently on the hunt for my 1st house.

 Hi Felix, I am a newbie and I would love to connect with those who are working in the Albany, NY area. A Zoom call is a great idea to start with. 

Sounds like we may have a handful of people who would be willing to do a Zoom session in the Albany/Saratoga region.   For those interested send me a private message with some time slots and I can setup the 1st one.   Excited to connect with others and share ideas.

I scheduled a 40 minute meet and greet for October 1st at 6:00pm EST.   DM me for the link ... Nothing formal for now.   Just answer 3 questions 

1 - Name/Occupation

2 - Real Estate background if any

3 - What are you looking to get out of a Zoom meeting like this ...


From there we can share current experiences, concerns, stories ... Just get to know one another and go from there.   Looking forward to it.   Talk soon.

Hello- I’m out in Long Island and have been tracking the Albany area for the past couple of month’s. Looking to pull trigger on first property in 2021. Going to be jumping on the zoom call. Very interested in hearing others insights. Thanks for putting together.
