Everyone wants to invest in multifamily properties. (Well, almost everyone.) But with the market heating up around the country, great deals are becoming incredibly difficult to find. That’s why we had to bring back one of our most popular guests on the BiggerPockets Podcast, Serge Shukhat.
The last time we talked with Serge back in episode 60, Serge told us how he built up a massive portfolio in just a few years. But if you were impressed then, this show is going to blow you away. Filled with TONS of actionable tips, stories and warnings, this is one episode you are going to want (and need) to listen to over and over again.
