Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever

Today’s episode was recorded at the meetup we host in Cincinnati every month ( Gaston has attended the meetup for years, and we have personally watched his growth as a real estate investor through the years. He’s scaled up to 240 units over the past few years, with no syndications or funds, all of the units are his own, acquired through traditional financing. One huge difference between Gaston’s business and most others that you’ve heard of, he buys bad properties (until he turns them around) in bad areas, which goes against the traditional advice you usually hear to “buy the worst property in the best neighborhood. We’ll hear his story of getting to the level he’s at today, and how he plans on continuing the growth. If you enjoyed today’s episode remember to subscribe in iTunes and leave us a review!
