New to the Wide World of REI - Bainbridge Island, WA

Hi guys, my name is Marty Telschow.  I am a currently a partner in a townhome rental on Bainbridge Island.  Recently, I have started absorbing all the great information on this site and the podcasts.  I am very excited to learn from some of the more experienced members. With a rapidly growing daughter to be concerned about, learning from BP members is a top priority for me to help make my investments successful. My hope is that real estate investing will be a way to achieve my own goals and also provide a model of success for my daughter as well.

I would love to hear from anyone else in the area on how they are seeing the current market.  It seems like a very interesting time to be in this industry with the potential changes in rates that seem to always be just around the corner.  How do people see it playing out in the rental market?
