Just wanted to take a minute and say hello. This certainly appears to be an extensive site, with great information.

Having held a real estate license and actually worked with a real estate firm some years ago, I do have some knowledge about investing in real estate, but it’s been many years since I’ve actually participated in that field.

Let me try to be as brief as possible. Each year we travel to the Kissimmee area in Florida for vacation and each year we find ourselves renting a home in the general area. We, the wife and I, prefer this to a Hotel stay. Doing this though, costs us approximately $1,200.00 a week for the home. We have been exploring the idea of investing in our own property or properties in that area and simply renting out the time we would not be there.

From what I’ve read on this forum, there is ton of knowledge out there we could make use of in completing this endeavor.

If anyone would like to offer his or her wisdom or thoughts on this idea, we would certainly be appreciative. Also, if anyone can provide information as to lenders, real estate agents or web sites that may assist us, that as well would be great. In just beginning this process, we are grateful for any help.
