Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever

Joe Riley, CEO of Patriot Family Homes, discusses the dynamic world of short-term rentals, focusing on challenges and opportunities within this niche. He shares his thoughts on how the short-term rental industry will be impacted alongside economic decisions in 2024 and how owners can maximize profits going into the new year.

Key Takeaways:
