Are you thinking of investing in your first property?

If that’s the case, there’s an important rite of passage you need to go through: it’s multi-family properties. In this episode of The Real Estate Mindset podcast, Amanda Barker, Javier Gomez and I chat about the important lessons new investors learn from owning multi-family properties and why this step shouldn’t be skipped. While you do make more money in syndications, you need to learn the ropes of this industry and there’s no better way than to start with a multi-family property where you’re doing the property management yourself.

We also chat about their experiences with masterminds and why it was worth the investment for them, what books they recommend, and what mistakes they’ve learned from in the past.
