Real Estate Investing is SO much more than single family homes. With all of the television shows regarding fixing up houses, it’s easy to forget there are other asset classes. 17% of the American population live in apartments. Apartment investing can be a terrific source of cash flow. Yes they are more expensive and yes the due diligence process is more involved, but it’s not that much more complicated than single family investing. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to start with single family and “graduate” to apartments. It’s possible to start with apartments! Our guest today, Lance Edwards has been investing in multi-family for many years and now teaches people how to do it. He’s the author of “Big Profits in Small Apartments” and in today’s edition of Flipping America, you’ll learn how you can get your copy of this great book for free. 

 

Plus we will get to some of your questions today. We appreciate the questions - keep em coming!
