Our guest for this week’s show is multifamily expert and co-founder of the Bascom Group, Jerry Fink.

  • His method for looking at 1,000 potential opportunities only to find 10 or less that fit his investment model, and then narrowing it down to 1 or 2 that make the final cut.
  • Why he suggests that you should never buy solely on cap rate, and if you do, why you run the risk of missing some potentially great deals.
  • Why they prefer to hire the best in class property Management Company rather than vertically integrating the management duties in-house.
  • The reason he feels that we’re currently in inning 6 or 7 of the current real estate cycle and what this means for you.
