Hey there BP. New investor looking to start out by investing in multi unit. Would be looking to occupy one of the units short term. Any advice on this idea?
It's a good way to get started but your question is pretty general. Are you wanting help getting financing? Understanding how to be a Landlord? State and local laws?
I recommend you start by reading one of the books that covers the basics of real estate investing and one on being a Landlord. That will give you the foundational knowledge and then you can refine your knowledge by asking more specific questions.
I hope that helps!
