University Student/Landlord/Part time employee
I bought a house in Windsor, ON a few years ago when prices were still low but just on their way up when I was in school there. Taking care of a couple tenants was cheaper than paying stand alone rent in Windsor, and it's still been going surprisingly good, few set backs with the fixer-upper aside.
At least I won't be a student for much longer! Should be done after a couple summer classes. Hopefully I can pay it off soon.
