Keep us updated on how things go. It is ironic that this morning I woke up to gray, winter skies and depressing weather. My wife and I were just joking about how we should just move to somewhere in Central America and live off our savings. Then I stopped in to check the forums and saw your note!
We're roughly the same age as you, but unfortunately, we don't have 30 rental properties to live off of. Only have one so far. I would be interested in your comments regarding having multiple rental units like you have. We have been considering at least one more, but I have the typical concerns regarding time required and ability to turn a profit monthly. Did you invest in mostly small houses, condos, duplexes or multi-unit buildings?
In any case, congrats again! Best of luck with your move!
