Thanks for your response. Truth is, I don't even know where to start on my road to FIRE. Well, that's not entirely true, but I'm still in the getting-out-of-debt and build-up-the-efund stage of things. Honestly, once that's done, I'm not sure what the next step will/should be.

One thing I like about this board -- or at least what I assume this board will be about -- is getting people like me to even think about this kind of thing. I figure that even if I don't make it (RE), I'll at least retire in a better financial situation than if I didn't think about it.

So, I don't have specific questions. It intrigues me that people can/will buy a property to generate income. My brother has done this and he's not even out of debt yet, but it's working for him. Me, I'm too scared to go out on that limb, at least right now.

Did you get into rental properties before doing other investments or after? (Assuming, of course, that you have other investments.)
