Moving To Back Memphis Tn To Wholesale Full-Time: Need Best REIA

4 Replies

I moved to Atlanta from Memphis about 5 years ago and I am moving back to Memphis. I discovered Real Estate wholesaling while in Atlanta and I plan to take what I've learn to grow my portfolio in the Memphis market. The Idea of buying a house for $18k and rehabbing for $10k then renting for $650 is very enticing. I had one cashflowing property in Memphis but gave it up. I plan to build up a Memphis portfolio this time for the long term.  The street my parents stay on is my starting point. Over 80% of the neighbors have paid for their houses and are passing away with no children returning to live in or rent them out. This is also true form many of the neighborhoods most of my relatives stay in as well. My goal is to buy up the block and surrounding blocks. 

I also plan to create a way to help Atlanta investors to take advantage of my presence in this Market. I have sources already interested. Time to build that list. 

But first things first. I will be scouting for the most active REIA in the area to introduce myself and start giving value. If you are in a local REIA in Memphis that has the people that are serious about winning in real estate give me an address so I can sign up. I look forward to connecting with new investors in the BIG "M" Town. Mom I'm coming home!
