Deciding on an area

3 Replies

Hi. My name is Linda and I'm brand new to this whole real estate business. I joined BP about three weeks ago and bought a few books to help get me started on the investigation stage of the process. My husband and I are looking at long term rentals. Undecided as to Single Family or small Multi Family.  Before I get to that point I thought it best I decide WHERE to invest. We are moving to the Myrtle Beach area and could be more hands on there. However I spent nearly 40 years of my life in Ohio and my husband lived there for twenty. I keep seeing things that say the mid west is the place to invest. Wondering if we'd do better buying in an area we know well and just using a top notch management company to handle the properties. Positive feedback is appreciated. :)
