I am currently a member of the Armed Forces and am seeking some advice in the real estate investment realm.

I am 27 yrs old, married with no children, and more than likely plan on finishing my career in the service. This means that I will be moving around about every 4-5 years or so.

I want to purchase an investment property at some point, with multiple units, so that I can live in unit and rent out the other 1 or 2. This would allow me to free up some of my income towards other investments or towards the actual principal of the loan to pay it off faster.

Anyway, does this make sense considering I will be rellocating often? And if so wouldn't a property manager eat up whatever profits I may see from the unit?

I definetley do not want to wait too long before buying a home, but do not want to get stuck with a potential problem in another state. Please help!!
