Thanks old guy, i like all the pointers. Probably going to go with having a cash flow. Those houses you are describing go from 60-120k or even more. I wont be able to buy more that 40k. I bought a 3 bed 2 bath 1200squ. foot as my primary res. for 2 years and sold it at market value last year for a descent profit. I used a rural dev. loan though which allowed me to move in for free, with no closing cost or downpayment. now i have to put 20 percent down on anything. Is there another way to get 0 down financing on investments now?

Seems like that would have been a keeper, how comeyou sold it?

But since you did, why not use that profit for the next rental? IMO, you'll need $80k to $100k houses to build up a nice group of rentals, those railroad shacks are going to cost money, they lose money when you sell, and they are money pits while you own them.

Yes. Refi your residence, use that money to make the DP - you'll be buying the rental without adding any new money.
