Hello, my name is Karen and I am from Maryland. I am very new to this site however I have quickly come to realize how amazing it is. I basically spend my free time listening to the podcast (thanks Josh and Brandon) and exploring post on topics I am trying to familiar myself with. I am very fresh to the real estate world. I am basically in the early learning phase. My husband and I are still currently exploring our options as far as investing goes but the buy and hold method always seems most appealing. I look forward to learning as much as possible from everyone and hope to one day help contribute to others successes.

Consider checking out HUD homes for small multi's owner occupied gets first crack.
You might consider Niche or Specialized Housing like student housing. Rents can be 2-4 times more. Remember you don't have to own a property to control it.
