I made a profile a few years ago, have listened to podcasts but, never got active in forums. I just got my license to sell real estate and am looking to move into selling full time. I also am interested in multi family properties and will be purchasing one within the next 4 months!

 Hello and welcome!  If you have decided to get into rentals, just be careful.  I have heard a lot of bad things that has happened to rental people.  Always make sure and run the numbers that will tell you if that is a good deal or not.  Be aware of what most people show you just is not true.  Know that you will pay to get a unit rented again and it will cost you so much.  Just be aware of those things and you will be OK.  I have heard that buying and fixing and selling is the way to make the most money.  The longer you stay there the more headaches you will have.  Just be aware that rentals will go Ok if you like dealing with people.  If there are typical problems you need to be patient.
