@Trevor Hall I’m not local, but I am definitely interested in the Portland area. I’m a newbie, but I’m willing to learn the market and take action if I can find the right partners & deals.
I feel the same way sometimes, but in fairness, I’ve not even begun to exhaust my resources locally yet. I still have a lot of BP folks to meet up with so we can network and share. It will happen brother. Keep it up!
wholesaling as taught by gurus is not legal in Oregon that's one issue.
but for meet ups check out @Mike Nuss program Rarebird.. lots of good investors attend this .
@Trevor Hall There are plenty of local investment groups. Rarebird is definitely one of them but you can look into the site Meetup.com. I have gone to quite a few meet ups with investors through that site. You can also look into NWREIA. There are a couple meetings a month through that group.
Check Facebook, there are real estate investing clubs in every major city that a lot of times have monthly meetups. As you drive around Portland keep an eye out for investors, signs of investors marketing for leads, or if you spot what you think is an investor's rehab check it out and ask the tradesmen working there. Also you could ask local agents or contractors if they know any investor's that are looking for wholesaler's. If you are completely new and have no experience not all of them will want to work with you unless you can prove you know what your doing, but they could at least point you in the right direction to find someone that will. Like Jay said, check out the laws and see what's legal.
I am local and always up to collaborate Trevor!
For new investors Portland is WAY overpriced. Especially if you have local money. I think it may be one of the most overvalued markets nowadays
Folks from CA are coming in and prices have skyrocketed.
I am in Eugene and so am looking for ways to meet/network so thanks for the posts :).
