So this year I want to pay off all my debt and by next year purchase a home (whether it be condo, townhouse or house). I live in California and I have access the to the VA Home Loan. My question is, what would be the best way to get positive income to come in. My end goal is to have more than 3 homes and all of them being rented out to give me positive income every month. But I don't know where to start. AND I don't know where/what city to acquire them at for future profit. Will someone with some real estate knowledge school me on my endeavors?
