Why do you want to invest in real estate? Is it just about having a lot of units—or is it about creating a life you can be proud of? On today’s episode of The BiggerPockets Podcast, we sit down with Josh Daniels, a real estate investor in Montana who, along with his wife Summer, has chosen to buy fewer but better deals on a quest for financial freedom. You’ll hear about Josh’s highly creative actions that turned their first deal into a cash-cow, as well as the shift to (and reason for) investing in single family houses. You’ll love Josh’s attitude toward financial freedom, as well as his message that you don’t need hundreds of units to be free.
