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!

Hey moms, Any ideas for an impromptu last minute 2-4 day trip from NYC that we can take with our 2-month old and parents?

Any recommendations would be much appreciated!

Where would you go from here if you were me? Was making good money at the midsize...
