Today on the BiggerPockets Podcast we are excited to welcome back a repeat guest coming to us from The Los Angeles area!
We first met Mehran Kamari in the newbie podcast back on show 025, where he took us through the process of his first out-of-state deal, and… well, a lot has happened since then!
Since his last appearance, Mehran’s business has blown up – just completing the purchase of his 10th property!
In today’s show, Mehran teaches us how to successfully invest out-of-state when your local market is too expensive. He goes into detail on how to use BiggerPockets to find out-of-state partners, what due diligence you need to do, who you need on your team, how to overcome fear and much, much more!
If you are in a market where the numbers just don’t seem to work, then this Podcast is for you!
