Yes, in the SF Bay Area and eventually the home I live in now in San Diego will become a rental too. I've owned rental property 10 years longer than I've had a license, as I was an investor first.

I love being able to serve as a homeowner, investor, Realtor.

Peter,
I used to own properties, rehab and flip, etc. Now that I’m a little older, I guard my time and investment property isn’t worth the time and interruptions to fix a property, talk to a tenant, etc.
