My first assignment location from Officer Training School will be at the LA Air Force Base. I would like to put my housing allowance to good use and invest in my first rental property with either a duplex, triplex, or quadplex so I can live in one of the units and rent out the other(s). I plan on getting a VA loan to finance the investment. I am open to any and all advice, and I'm almost done reading the "Ultimate Beginners Guide..." but I have so much more to learn. Let me know if you know of any great resources to get started with this sort of thing.
Welcome. Thanks for your service.
