How is everyone doing? I have some very basic real estate questions for all of you. For the past few months now I have been thinking of investing in some real estate property. The areas I am very interested in is the Myrtle Beach area because of the increasing population growth. Well anyways let me get into my situation for you. I am currently graduating college with little debt to payback thankfully. I acutally was also lucky enough to make a few thousand dollars in savings in the past (est. around 17,000). I was toying with the of moving to myrtle beach and purcahsing a condo that will hopefully grow in value thourgh out time. Currently I have two realiable roommates that would be willing to sign a lease and move into this condo with me. With them paying rent and myself also paying it should easily help pay the mortgage for the first year or so. (or atleast as long as we all live there) I would like to purcahse a propertly that I could currently live in for a few years with roommates then eventually pick up propertys as I go along. I could end up selling my first purschase or even use it as collateral to collect more propertys. Does anybody have any advice or think this is a poor/good idea. Please let me konw. Thanks for your time.
