How do you start investing in rental properties? Newbie

Having a mortgage yourself won't necessarily matter (unless for some reason it kills your debt to income ratio something fierce). But full-time job-- it's all in how you structure your investing. If you try to wholesale or take on a massive project that requires a lot of your time and attention, you might be shooting yourself in the foot. But if you buy something more turnkey that doesn't need a ton of work and the management is either fairly easy and straightforward or you hire a property manager for it, then that's plenty easy with a full-time job.
