Personally I have never been a fan of fixing and flipping. It takes a lot time and there is no guarantee that the flipped realestate will generate the amount you wanted it to.
Fixing and flipping is also a job in itself. Especially if your doing the renovations your self to save money. I commend you if your able to do the fix and flips while active duty though.
Sorry, dont mean to shoot down your fix and flip dream here, just never been my cup of tea.
Let us know how things are shaping up once you hit the ground running.

@Scott Hensley , thanks for your reply. Each day I’m trying to learn something about real estate investment and how to move towards my goal of being financially free. Once I close on both houses I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated on the progress.
@Anthony Wienke , thanks for your comment. Fix and Flip is where I want to start but eventually I’ll try to move towards the rental market. I’ve got a contractor to do all the heavy lifting and family in the area to help as needed. My goal will be to be in and out as fast as possible each flip so I can move to the next.
