New to the Real Estate Investing game. Haven’t really found any meet up or events in Charleston/ Huntington area.
Just trying to find like minded people to network with.
Hi @Garret Adkins ! Welcome to BP. I'm based out of Summersville, WV. I'm also looking to network with other local investors. Haven't seen any meet ups in the area here either or Morgantown. Would be happy to connect with you.
@Nathan Smith Sure thing! Are you currently investing or just getting started?
I have one short-term rental property currently. Looking to get my second one this year/early next year. Learning and trying to meet others
@Nathan Smith I haven't bought any properties yet. I'm gonna try to get my first one this summer. I'm gonna test the waters and get my feet wet with a BRRRR.
Searching for the right property. Looking around South Charleston area and in between Charleston and Huntington.
@Garret Adkins Good luck man! Reach out if you have any questions. Definitely do your research in the Charleston/Huntington areas. There's obviously some bad areas, but there are several good areas too. I'd recommend getting with a good realtor who is investor friendly. That way they can guide you in the right direction.
My next one will be a BRRRR also. I think that's a great plan for you
@Nathan Smith will do man. I’ve definitely got my fine tuned areas. Just have to make a good deal.
We should start a meetup with local investors and network.
I’m goin to go to a BP meet up and see what it’s all about. I think the closest one is in Pittsburgh. I’m also interested in the wheeling area so that will help me network up there. I used to work up there so I know the area pretty good.
@Garret Adkins I agree! I'd be happy to travel to out a little further if it means to be able to network with other investors local to the area. Let me know how it goes. Maybe we can try to revitalize something in our area too
@Nathan Smith I’ve actually talked to a couple of people that are in Huntington. I connected with them through a FB group. One has rentals and the other is a wholesaler. There seem to be people that are investor in our area it’s just hard to find them.
@Garret Adkins I invest in the Huntington/Ashland area. I have 7 SFHs right now. Still small time but getting it going. Feel free to send me a PM. I probably know the wholesaler you are referring to. Lots of good people in the area. Charleston is also a good market if you know the area, just a little to far for me right now. I will definitely start buying in that area if my local area dries up though.
@Nathan Smith I have a client in Beckley WV looking to get rid of her inherited property. Any ideas on who I can contact out there? We both live in Northern Va & the distance is too great for her to own rent & maintain it.
@Avery Pearson I'd be interested in it. Send over details that you have please!
