Investing in American Real Estate While Serving in the US Military

I have a lot of respect for the men and women in our armed services.

Each day, while I’m out there picking up rent, recording an episode of the BiggerPockets Podcast, or watching the latest episode of The Walking Dead – they are working to ensure I can continue living this lifestyle in peace.  So before I move on: if that is you – let my just say a very sincere “Thank You.”

This guide is meant to serve as a starting place for those looking to invest in real estate while serving in the US Military. Just to be 100% clear – I’ve never served in the military, so only writing from the perspective of one who has a pretty good view of the US investing world and enjoys explaining things!

Obviously, there are numerous branches of the military, as well as numerous different jobs, duties, responsibilities, pay scales, and locations for those serving. You might be located within the States, or you may be serving abroad. You may have a family, or you may be living alone. Maybe you are full time, or perhaps you are a “weekend warrior.”  Maybe you’ve been in the military for years and make a great salary, or maybe you are fresh out of boot camp.

The possibilities are endless – therefore, I will not attempt to say “This is exactly how you should start investing.” This would be pointless – every investing strategy should be designed around the place where your abilities, your finances, and your goals meet.
