My 4 Takeaways from owning and selling a Multi Unit!

"The Greek word for insight is syniemi, which means to put facts together to arrive at an understanding complete with life applications.” - Lysa TerKeurst (Uninvited)

I've been doing passive real estate investment in the last 7 years but up until a year ago, I was only dipping my toes in it and not fully getting all in. What changed? Well, when you hang out with people who have an amazing vision for their life, it tends to rub off on you. My friend Sweeney (IG: @sweeney_mae) introduced me to Bigger Pockets about a year ago and since then I have been devouring everything real estate that I can get my hands to. I've been so inspired since being introduced to BP and especially by this most recent podcast, episode 331 with Ashley Hamilton. Stories like hers make me get up at 4 - 5am every day to get my real estate learning done before I head to my other passions which is training for stunts. Listened to this podcast twice and cried both times as I felt so encouraged, challenged and inspired by her.

With that, I’m making a promise to myself that I will do the same…. Inspiring people to build wealth through real estate investing by sharing my own stories about how my husband and I currently have 3 properties (well now, just two cuz we sold one last week!!!) and will continue to implement strategies that will grow our real estate investment portfolio.

So yes, we did a thing on May 31st!!!! Sold our first multi unit investment property in NY!!! Below is the link to my Vlog, detailing my 4 major take aways from owning this property for the last 4 years. This is my Syniemi, my insight, an understanding that I arrived at because of my life application. I’ve read and studied a lot but I am living out what it’s like to apply these principles. I hope you too are encouraged and will take it to heart that inspiration and information without personal application will never amount to transformation.

Thanks for your words and encouragement. I live in LA and am trying to gain the knowledge and courage necessary to do my first deal (preferably a duplex or triplex).

I didn’t see a link to your vlog but would love to read about your takeaways. Can you please share?

@Kat Hughes Congratulations!! Some of us live and breathe real estate, and it rubs off on others and we can all share in the joy of it. :) When other people are out fishing on the weekends, I'm driving around with my wife.... looking at real estate LOL. 

Good luck on your next deal, and the dozen that follow it!

 Hi Daniel!  I live in LA too!  Happy to chat and brainstorm and encourage each other to keep growing.  I just updated the post... I guess we're not allowed to post Youtube links on forums.  The video is on my IG (@katdingcong)  If you still can't access it, let me know.  Also happy to chat over the phone (I certainly made a lot of mistakes with this property we just sold which I'm learning from).

 Haha! Love that!  I agree!!!  Now I can't stop thinking and talking about real estate! 

And yes, I sure am looking forward to dozens more deals!

 Thank you for your kindness and support, Kat! I didn’t realize you were in LA! I’m trying to build my network here of like-minded individuals! I have so many questions as I continue to learn and attend meetups. If you have any free time, I would love to chat with you on the phone! I will send you a direct message!
