Greetings from sunny Georgia,

My wife and I live near Ft Stewart GA (where I am stationed). We own a rental property in Paonia, CO and are closing on our second property in Hinesville, GA which we will use as our residence with the eventual aim to turn it into a rental as well. We are making the transition from simply collecting real estate without any clearly defined goal to intelligently investing in real estate to achieve a specific end. BP has been instrumental in helping identify our shortcomings and lack of knowledge while simultaneously offering us easy access to the information we need. Such a huge help.

I am a soldier in the Army and my wife is a full time emergency room nurse in Savannah. Our short term goal is to purchase 3 more properties in the area with the goal of flipping two and holding one for a rental. Although we have financial goals in relation to real estate, we have been pleasantly surprised by how much fun we are having with the process.

We look forward to learning more before we move on to our next property.

Hope everyone is having a great day

@Ashford Perry Welcome to BiggerPockets.

Thats a lot of information here and it's easy to spend a lot of time "going down the rabbit hole" as there are so many topics to explore. If you haven't already, I recommend getting started with the Podcasts. As it seems you already have some experience you can check out the File Place to see if there is anything to help you with your transition.
