im starting to question the owning property idea.

at least in floriduh

the taxes, and even worse, the insurance, has gone so high, its starting to seriously affect properties profitability.  at least if your doing it on a small scale.  have a few homes/businesses, rent them for income.

anyone know where good areas of the country are for that?

Total world domination.

But I'll start with owning some property and traveling around the world. By the 10 year post-law school anniversary I hope to successfully transition from firm life into an in-house position with a major corporation. Depending on where I go to LS, this will either be within the Southeast or the West Coast. I would like to live abroad at some point.

In house with a bank or other financial corporation or at a smaller estate planning firm.  Own my own house and maybe some investment properties.  Married, 2-3 kids.  Visited every continent (except maybe Antartica).  Some other stuff that I can't remember right now.
