Newbie in Atlanta area - Posted by Rebecca B (Atlanta)

I just finished the CS program. I was all excited about the program until I started calling brokers about some property listings. One was saying the rental market was bad at this time; another did not really want to give me the information that I was asking about a property.

I am more in the Athens area (a college town). I know there must be properties available that would meet what I’m looking for, but the verteran investors are probably going to catch the good stuff.

Are there any Atlanta people making this work. I’m not wanting to step on anyone’s toes, I just want a little advise and encouragement. I really, really want this to work. I have 3 kids and would love to have enough steady income each month to stay at home with them.

I understand the course and see how it can work (of course, there are risks). I also think that if I find some duplexes or single-family homes that can show a good monthly income that my bank would loan me 100% or close to it.

Any advise/encouragement/warnings would be greatly appreciated.
