Hello there, I'm Keith from Los Angeles, CA and landed on this site reading about turn key investment properties. Am interested in learning more about this for out of state purchases (LA market seems to make no sense to buy property right now, need to pay a boatload for a pile of crap). I do work in the construction industry (HVAC engineer), however I am really clueless when it comes to investing in properties like crunching the numbers on a rental property to see if it makes sense to buy it, the whole home buying process (ive been a renter all my life, never bought a property) and maintenance issues, etc. I have an idea but not comfortable enough to leap in right away without learning a little more. I dont have too much saved up but could come up with 20% down on a $40k property in Detroit or something like that fairly quickly.
