BiggerPockets Podcast 219: Private Lending, Turnkey Investing, and Crowdfunding Real Estate with Dr. Kenyon Meadows
Many people invest in real estate hoping to make “passive income” but instead find they work more than they would at a day job! But not all real estate niches require a lot of time—and today’s show proves that! Today on the BiggerPockets Podcast, we sit down with Dr Kenyon Meadows, a real estate investor who chooses to invest his money using a variety of passive real estate vehicles, including funding other real estate investors, investing out of state through several turnkey companies, and investing in over 30 crowdfunding deals! If you are looking to make your real estate more passive, this is one show you can’t afford to miss!
