Hey Jack! We are just getting started but so far doing well in Birmingham investments. We are managing the properties ourselves so no help on that front. Let me know if you need any help in the area.

We invest in Alabama and love it. You have to be careful which parts of town you buy in. Like with any big cities, you’ve got some serious crime in some portions. Cash flow and appreciation are good here.

I think you should start by investing in the state that you live.
