A few years ago, Ed Faukner bought a new house for his growing family to live in. The day after they moved in…his wife informed him that she HATED the house and wanted to move. Yikes! Instead of selling they rented it out. That was his first experience with owning rental real estate. He was terrified with having someone else live in their home. After a while, he got comfortable with owning rental real estate and bought a duplex. He eventually sold it and realized a large gain. He was hooked. He wanted to buy more units. Ed wanted to start with small steps in buying rental property. With a partner, he bought a 10 unit building. He has learned a lot in a short period of time. His biggest lesson is BIGGER IS BETTER in MULTIFAMILY. He learned that economies of scale were important in multifamily. His next transaction was a much bigger property with 44 units. Ed’s journey is typical of many real estate investors…he took baby steps from a single family rental , then a duplex, to a 10 unit, and now… 44 units. Could you do this?
