You have a good deal and know how to continue the focus. Well done.

One option that you did not really mention and which others have not brought up is to buy a rental property. A little exposure to the housing market is a good idea IMHO.

If you have a sense that you will end up in a certain city when you are no longer on the road, being long in that market (owning property in that market) will help you hedge the risk that values will jump more than you can afford. Granted they could also go down.

As you are not local, definitely look at using a property management company and add such costs in when running the numbers.

I can provide more advice if you want to go in this direction. I have property in multiple locations and have been investing for over 20 years.
