@Aaron Dallas , As others have said, Welcome! You've come to the right place. Lots of great folks to connect to here on BP. I live in Ocala and have been here most of my life. I'm a realtor here and work with a number of BP members in helping them find investment property in Ocala and Marion County. Tampa and Jacksonville are nice areas as well. You may also want to check out some surrounding areas of Orlando like Sanford or Clermont. As for the Ocala area, I'd love to help you here. PM me so we can connect and find the best place for you.

@Aaron Dallas , welcome to BP! I am a new investor in the Jacksonville area and am part of the local REI. It is a great place to network with like-minded people like ourselves and learn at the same time. Look up the website, just google "JaxREI". There are many wholesalers that can help you find the properties you are looking for!
