What is the Perfect Investment?
My guest today, Paul Moore has his view on that question, and he feels so strongly about it that he wrote a book called "The Perfect Investment - Create Enduring Wealth from the Historic Shift to Multifamily Housing".
Join Paul and me as we talk about Multifamily and Apartment Investing; the compelling demographics and trends, market selection, the barriers to entry, and the tax benefits that can create enduring wealth.
Paul has a lot of great stories to share and his warning to always 'look for the flies in the deal' is invaluable. I know you'll find a lot in this conversation that will help you become a more confident and successful real estate investor.
I also highly recommend his new book "The Perfect Investment - Create Enduring Wealth from the Historic Shift to Multifamily Housing" which is available on amazon.com and his website: http://www.wellingscapital.com/
