Hi all ! 

Life long Maryland resident. Live lived all over the state and recently moved back after living in Chicago for 5 years. Im looking to start networking with other Frederick/Urbana/Bethesda real estate investors. If you are in the area i'd love to connect and network! 

You should come out to the Gaithersburg Meetup

Hello! @Josh Thames  

Welcome to BP, and congratulations on making the decision to invest in your future via real estate.

I have written a few blog posts that may help you get started here on BP, and with your investing. Please click on the links, give them a read, and share your thoughts in the comments.

First is a post that I feel will help not get overwhelmed with the amount of info that is here on BP:

The second is a post that will help get you focused with your real estate investing goals:

The last one is a post that will help you choose an “investor friendly” real estate agent. There are many agents out there, but it’s important to choose the right one.

I have other blogs that may be helpful here on BP in my personal blog that you can check out. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out to me directly. Good luck.

Josh, you did the right thing by moving back when you did.  Your area is BOOMING right now.  Walkersville, Hagerstown, And Frederick all are seeing heavy growth with profits.  I’m 37 and I still look back at the way it was when they first started building when I was a kid....man times change.

Anyways, if you are looking for a safe rental, look inward towards Baltimore. You can do some very profitable BRRR's. Good luck!
