Bayview and Oakland are not as scary as people think. I don't mind living there myself. It's just my style of investing, one of many. I like to deal with people like myself. And so far I have been very well rewarded.
I too have houses that net 1k a month. But can we still find these deals in Bay Area? I am not so sure. Even multi fams in Stockton are getting very expensive.
My 100k number is of course net cash flow. If we are talking about gross I passed that years ago. So I suppose one way to get to my goal is pay off some of my properties. But what's the fun in that? I want to maximize my debt!
