In an effort to unite the real estate investment community and associated professionals via the Internet, BiggerPockets, Inc., a Sherman Oaks, California based company, has officially launched BiggerPockets.com Real Estate Investing - http://www.biggerpockets.com, a real estate portal that offers its services and national resources free of charge to its users.
ÂWe're not trying to hawk anything to our users, like the late-night gurus with their get rich in two weeks programs,Â says Joshua Reed Dorkin, BiggerPockets' President and CEO. ÂWe're focused on educating our users by providing all the information they need to make informed decisions without costing them hundreds or thousands of dollars. Where most real estate investing websites focus on selling courses, books, and software, we find the same resources and bring it to our users for free!"
There are no access fees for any portion of the BiggerPockets.com site. ÂWe believe in the Open-Source concept of sharing and collaborating to achieve a communal good,Â Dorkin said. In an effort to facilitate this, BiggerPockets.com encourages investors to fully utilize its interactive community forum -- http://forums.biggerpockets.com
"The forum is an exciting way for investors to communicate with one another; to help answer one another's questions and, we hope, helps solve one another's investment problems," says Dorkin. "It is, I might add, a wonderful way for investors to just network as well."
BiggerPockets.com offers everything from listings of investment properties nationwide - http://www.biggerpockets.com/properties/, to a directory of real estate clubs, to help for investors trying to locate appraisers, real estate agents, developers and contractors.
For those interested in rental properties, BiggerPockers.com has formed a strategic partnership with RealEstateCritic.com - http://www.biggerpockets.com/recritic.html, offering its new rental property analysis tool which can be used to calculate cash flow, rate of return and expenses.
Dorkin, an entrepreneur, real estate investor, web designer and former realtor, founded BiggerPockets.com because, he says, ÂI was not satisfied by the online offerings of other real estate sites. We are truly comprehensive, offering a premium service to advanced and novice real estate investors alike; and, most important, it's free.Â
BiggerPockets.com is a valuable resource for both novice and advanced real estate investors.
