I have used TSP loans to fund my investing in the past. The returns on the TSP are fine if you want an average retirement. I decided a while ago that the average retirement did not seem satisfying and that I wanted more.

100k is a ton for a new investor! Real estate is all about leverage and so I would recommend only starting with 20k to 40k as a down payment on a multifamily in a local city. If you find your putting in the effort to find good deals and your making stable income to pay down your mortgage a year out you could buy another. If you follow that trajectory in 10 years you'll have some unbelievable retirement income! Good Luck!
