earn real estate cashflow with investment goals, multifamily investingInvestor, author and real estate investing mentor, Rod Khleif has done it all.

Rod was introduced to real estate investing early on. He managed to find success fairly quickly and, by 2006, had acquired thousands of properties across the U.S., including 800 in Florida.

Rod’s taste for real estate investing lies mostly in multifamily investing.

With single family properties, you can run the risk of spreading yourself too thin. It can become difficult to manage a large portfolio of single family properties. You have the potential to earn greater returns while managing fewer physical properties.

Rod also found that, following the market crash of 2008, his multifamily properties fared much better than his single family homes.

In this edition of Landlord Tales, Rod talks how multifamily investing allows you to consolidate your bottom line. He also shares his outlook on the real estate market cycle.

Consolidating Your Bottom Line Through Multifamily Investing

  • Easier Property Management
    • Stockpile spare/replacement parts for property maintenance
  • Stronger Buy-and-Hold Strategy
    • Duplexes/Four-plexes considered residential real estate, eligible for residential financing
    • Income producing
  • Commercial Multifamily Has Value-add Potential
    • You can exponentially increase your ROI through value-add features in your commercial multifamily investments.

Market Outlook

“What goes up must come down”

In his market outlook, Rod shares some uncertainty over the future of the real estate market. He cautions investors to be wary of those claiming that a crash isn’t going to happen.

  • Flippers: be careful entering into high-dollar flips
  • Multifamily investing: Avoid 5-year balloons

Whatever your market; single family or multifamily investing; focus on cash flow investments. Investing for value can leave you with little options in a downturn.
