Hello Bigger Pockets,
My name is Vince. I've been listening to the bigger pockets podcast for a couple weeks now and am looking to make the first steps in investing. Is there anyone in the Richmond, VA area that I could meet up with for coffee (or beer) on me. I would like to gain a more in depth look into the community and would also like to add some value to your investment/time. Thank you!!
Thanks for the reply, David. I have not been to real estate meet up. Thanks for the advise! If you have any days where you are free I'd like to pick your brain over coffee!
Richmond REIA group meets tonight....4366 Springfield Rd, Glen Allen....630 until 800-830. I believe non member cost is $10
Hi Vince. What part of Richmond are you trying to invest in?
A co-worker (from Chester) and I are teaming up to start real estate investing in the Richmond area as well. I just moved to Henrico county from Fredericksburg, where I just sold my live-in-flip. I have 12 years of plumbing/electrical experience, and I know many facets of residential remodeling. I am now an accountant for a state agency, and I am just tired of working for others and having nothing to show for it. We went to our local REIA meeting last week and met some good contacts pretty quickly. We are likely going to fix and flip a couple SFH's to start, and then buy and hold moving forward (all depends on the deal and location of homes though). Let me know what you guys are doing, and maybe we can collaborate or share deals if they aren't the right fit for our personal needs/wants. Have a good day.
Are you looking to do flips or buy and holds? The REI Meetings are a great way to connect as well!
