How can you best harness the market cycle? Multifamily investing is a bit different than other types of residential real estate investing. When the economy begins to shift, and a recession is looming, multifamily real estate tends to drop in price. But, at the same time, more renters need a place to stay, or more importantly, an affordable place to stay, making multifamily apartments their go-to option. If apartment investing has ever interested you before, Jake Stenziano and Gino Barbaro make a strong argument why now may be the perfect time to get into the industry.
If you’re feeling deja vu, don’t worry, Jake and Gino have been on the BiggerPockets Podcast multiple times before. Each time they come on they bring new lessons, new deals, and a lot more units under their belt. Only a decade or so ago, Jake and Gino were busting their humps working at jobs and businesses that didn’t fulfill them. It took them a year and a half to buy their first deal, and now, they’re sitting on $175M worth of multifamily. That’s quite a lot of deals in just a decade.
Jake and Gino drop some gems in this episode, specifically on why 2022 may be a smart market to start investing in, how to develop your “buy right” criteria, and preparing your exit strategies so you can build wealth, not just get rich once. They’ve learned a lot of multifamily investing lessons the hard way, so next time you’re presented with a killer deal, you don’t have to double down on their mistakes.
