Do you currently work with an agent here in AZ? If not I'd be happy to help you. I would suggest different strategies depending on what your initial investment is and how long you plan to hold the property. If you favor a certain part of AZ such as the North rim country if you live in Phoenix all summer then maybe a seasonal rental would work for you so that you could plan your getaways amongst the short term rentals. I belong to the nations leading REIA and have some great connections on wholesale properties as well. We need to talk. My cell is 480-797-7732.
