Investing from far away

How hard is it to own multi family properties that are out of your state if you are new to investing and you have a full time job? What would I need to do?

I think that depends on the approach you decide to take.  What are your plans?  Find, fix and flip/rent on your own? Use a partner?  Turnkey?  Each has difficulties and risks.  Give us a little more information on what you want to do?

Invest close to home. Much easier to deal with.

I want to purchase a multi family around 60 units and rent it out on my own

@Ed Schell  

I would say very difficult to manage a 60 unit property on your own would be a full time job if you were close by.  At a distance, I simply don't know how you would do it at all.  You have to at least hire a property manager I would think.

With management in place is it difficult?

Hi Ed,

Great question.
