    I say go for it! Have fun and challenge yourself. You only get one life. But if it dont feel right, figure out why. Cause you might be crazy. haha im teasing. I bought two Single Fams and been able to convert them to a little income but mainly a free place to live. Plus i have fruit trees and bushes and all sorts of cool beauty and fun stuff to do. So for me it makes sense. Personally. Although, my dad owns a Bed and Breakfast down in SouthEast Texas and i would probably never invest down there. Although i would also never live there. Hopefully whereever you are can only get better with owning your own home. Its better for the soul i think. =) Its also better for your bigger pockets if you play it smart with BP.
