Tips on starting in NEW market???

What advice does anyone have for breaking in to a new market…a city and state that I have never lived in and am not familiar with???

In the city I’ve lived for 10+ years I know exactly what neighborhoods are hot - what’s up-and-coming, what’s going to explode in 2 years, what you don’t want to touch with a 10-foot pole, etc.

But I am moving to a city where I don’t know anyone and know nothing about the area/neighborhoods. I definitely plan on joining the local investment clubs and networking, but didn’t know if anyone has other good tips?


Being a rookie I can’t help you much but it seems that you’ve already nailed it yourself:

Joining a RE club and networking

Driving around getting to know the neighborhood
