Good Afternoon BP,

My wife and I are new to BP but absouletly love the wealth of knowledge and the family atmosphere. My wife and i are extremely green in Real estate world but love learning. I am in the military and my wife is a loan officer, we are interested in the buy and hold strategy. We currently own one rental property in Milton, Florida and plan on buying more there. Right now we live in southern California due to my duty station. We are eager to learn and excited to meet  all you wonderful people of the real estate world. 


I too am military (Naval Flight Student) and I'm actually looking to buy a rental property in Milton! I expect to be sent there fairly soon for primary and will be house-hacking using my friends as tenants.  

Can you share your experiences owning a rental property in that area? Any tips you can give to someone looking to invest in Milton?

@David L Castro , welcome to BP!  

I invest in Milton as well, have a couple rentals there.  I'm also military and fly out of Whiting Field so if you ever need anything let me know.
