I’ve been in business for decades, and numerous factors have contributed to the success my family and I enjoy today. But man, out of everything I’ve done, real estate was the ultimate game-changer for me. Today, I want to share why I’ll always choose multifamily real estate over any other investment vehicles…
For more than 30 years, I’ve been doing deal after deal in the real estate industry. And in the process, my life has improved beyond my wildest dreams.
Before I get into why I love multifamily so much, let me paint a quick picture to show how massive this shift has been…
Multifamily Real Estate Changed My Life
When I first got into the real estate game, I was a salesperson in retail. A successful one, but always on the grind, overpromising and overdelivering for every customer.
However, a real player knows you haven’t made it until your money starts making money for you.
So once I got some moolah in the bank, my sights turned to making some kind of investment. That’s when I remembered my father talking about the incredible potential real estate investing had…
I began to do my homework on it, and old dad was right. It almost seemed too good to be true. Nonetheless, I decided to look for an apartment building and give it a shot.
But nothing could prepare me for the life-changing financial freedom that multifamily real estate has granted me and my family.
Fast-forward a couple of decades, and my portfolio has grown to over $4 billion in assets under management.
It’s easy to see why I love this vehicle so much, but I’ll get down to the specifics…
4 Massive Reasons Why Multifamily Real Estate Is My Favorite Investment Vehicle
Look, real estate is my favorite topic.
That being said, here are the reasons which sold me on taking the risk in the first place.
1. It’s REAL
As I was going over investing opportunities, my advisors did present stocks as an option.
But something about trading paper for paper didn’t sit right with me…
I want my investments to be tangible. And real estate is just that — real.
Since people will always need a place to live, I was more confident in multifamily to pay off over time…
2. High Demand
Additionally, current trends show an ever-growing demand for apartments…
At the beginning of the year, Bloomberg reported how apartment occupancy skyrocketed to a historic high.
The National Association of Realtors also points to an ongoing decline in both existing and pending home sales across the board.
Statistically speaking, I like what I’m seeing. But that’s not even the best part…
3. Cash Flow, Baby!
In many other vehicles, you get paid a couple of times a year in the best of cases, if the investment was profitable…
MULTIFAMILY REAL ESTATE PAYS ME EVERY MONTH.
I don’t know about you, but I pay my bills every month; not semi-annually.
So, I’d like to get my cash and pay the power company to keep my lights on.
As much as this sweetens the deal when talking about real estate, there is still one more reason bigger than everything I mentioned so far…
4. Generational Wealth
Above all, I want to leave something for my children.
And the cash flow I have from multifamily real estate can provide for my family long after I’m gone…
Ultimately, generational wealth was really my end goal when looking for investment opportunities. With my due diligence, multifamily has done that for me.
If none of the other three reasons were there, taking care of my family for generations would be more than enough for me.
May all the information I shared today help you get into the vehicle that’s right for you.
