thinking of buying out of state

I live in the LA (Los Angeles) area. I’m looking for investments around here, but I’m also thinking about investing in spokane, wa. where it is much more affordable. my brother lives there and has offered to help me fix fixer-uppers. I would still have to manage the properties from LA. I’d be finding old houses for $40,000 or less, fix them up and rent them out. Any one have any thoughts on this? Spokane is about 1200 miles away.

sounds like your brother will be finding, fixing and managing the houses. what are you bringing to the table?
