Dan Feinman went from Wall Street to Florida real estate investor. The stark differences in value between the New York and Florida real estate markets allowed Dan to recognize a real opportunity in front of him with property in Florida. In between, he managed to travel the world and marry , settling in the Tampa area and starting a family.
His entrance in to the world of single family investing was during the worst economic crisis in a lifetime. The downturn, however, did not hurt him or slow his progress. The dire economic situation allowed him to sharpen his skills and emerge stronger. It allowed (or forced him) to be nimble and open-minded about how to make money in the business…teaching him lessons that will serve him throughout his career. Dan used savings and savvy investment techniques to purchase his first investment properties. He experimented with buy and hold, rehab and flipping and then taught himself how to lend to investors just like him. We hope you enjoy Dan’s discussion of his journey.
