Debating on investing on our first rental property. We were initially thinking about a rental in our area code (northern virginia) but all ideas/threads on here seem to indicate renting a beach front property on airbnb would be a win-win. Get mortgage covered over the summer and use it as a vacation home during winter. Is it that straightforward, what are we missing? Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!

Making the jump to industry. I’ve got 3 final interviews either later this week or early next week, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to give my 2 week’s notice sometime next week. Problem is I have a vacation scheduled for the week of August 23rd that was approved by my company & the companies I’m interviewing with said I can start after. If I only have a week and a half of work before my vacation starts, do I offer to work the week after my vacation before leaving? Or just work until vacation?
