New Member from Nashville, TN, moving to Chicago, IL

4 Replies

Hello everyone.  I am currently in Nashville, TN but will be relocating to Chicago at the end of the calendar year.  My wife and I collectively own two properties, both condos in Nashville area.  One is our current residence, and the other my wife became an accidental landlord when she moved in with me while we were still dating.  I'd like to reach finical independence (like everyone else) and hope to do that through building as mostly passive investment portfolio as well by building a business so I can leave the 8-5 J.O.B. that while I don't hate it, I also am not excited about anymore.  Looking forward to meeting the community and learning.  

Hi Mike,

Welcome to BP nation. This is an awesome place and a great community!

If I may ask, where are your condos currently located? From my experience the HOA fees on condos in the Nashville area are so steep that they erode cash flow and end up being not so great investments.
