Announcing: BiggerPockets News Update 4-20-07


Hello Everyone. We wanted to give you an update on a few exciting new things going on here at BiggerPockets®!

New Website Features

  1. Meet the Investor
    We’ve begun to interview investors in an attempt to help others learn more about what it takes to be successful. Have a look. Many of our blog readers are already familiar with this feature, but we are looking for more people to interview . . . it’s a great chance to get some free publicity for you and your blog/site!

  2. Find County Records
    We’ve assembled a directory of county records offices for every county and parish in the country with a website. Use the directory to locate your local assessor or recorder’s office or to find property records online.

  3. Join our National Investor’s Database
    We are building a national real estate investor’s list. The purpose behind the list is to be able to offer exclusive real estate deals to our members that we hear about constantly. Jump on board! It only takes a minute to fill out.

  4. investors networkInvestors Network
    In an attempt at bringing some increased exposure to our members with investor websites and blogs, we’re creating a directory of real estate site. If you’re a wholesaler, rehabber, landlord, or other investor and have a site, let us know and we’ll get you in the directory!

Changes at the Forums

Now With 6,000 Members and Counting!!!
We’ve been adding some new areas to the forums to help organize things a bit. Stop by and check out these new areas:

  1. Wholesaling Forum
    Finally! Discuss Wholesaling strategies, learn about different techniques, how to conduct a wholesale deal, making offers, assigning contracts, etc. With some fantastic wholesaling experts on site to help out, this is the place to go for your questions!
    Not sure why we never had one before, but we do now!

  2. Ask About a Real Estate Company
    Wondering if a company is a scam or conducting fraud? Heard about a new investment offer?
    Ask about any company doing business in real estate. Discussion topics include: Nouveau Riche, Club Freedom, Pinnacle Development Partners, etc.

  3. Home Owner Association (HOA) Issues & Problems Forum
    This area of the site is for the discussion of any questions, issues, or problems that arise with condo or community Home Owner Associations. With little State or Federal governance, these bodies have been a headache for countless investors, realtors, homeowners!

Another small change we recently made on the forums is the addition of birthdays. If you scroll to the bottom of the main forum page, you’ll see members having a birthday (editable on your profile page). Make someone’s day and send them good wishes on their big day!
