Thanks for the reply John.

Actually I do have experience investing - done many rehabs in my area.

My goal is not to beat the streets too much any more - basically to semi-retire. I am investigating various options…

  • Small commercial strip
  • Several Condos/Townhouses/SFH
  • Small MHP
  • Mini Storage.

Do you have any experience managing property?

Cash is great so go slow and do the right deals. Right being something
that works for you and your lifestyle. There will always be good deals
and you do not need to rush. There are even people out there who can
help once you have a clear objective.

Post or email if you want to discuss further. The best thing might be to
sit on the money and develop a strategy before investing.
