The BiggerPockets Real Estate Investing Podcast

Is there such thing as a “perfect investment?” According to today’s guest, yes. Today on the BiggerPockets Podcast we sit down with Paul Moore, a real estate investor whose 18-year journey through real estate has included house flipping, new construction, hotels, and finally—multifamily. In this episode, Paul shares three powerful reasons why multifamily might just be the most perfect real estate investment. You’ll learn how Paul discovered the vital difference between investing and speculating, why falling in love (with a deal) is incredibly dangerous, and the huge real estate gamble that Paul made that cost him $40,000. If you plan to eventually buy small multifamily properties, this is one podcast episode you can’t miss!

After realizing the fragile nature of his six-figure salary, he set out to replace his salary with passive income—as quickly as possible. This led him to average a new home purchase every month for the first year and a half, and soon he had true financial freedom and quit his 9–5. This show is packed full of actionable tips, including some never-before-heard-on-this-podcast strategies for finding deals with the use of virtual assistants, Craigslist, and cold calling!
