Small or large Multi family investing

1 Reply

Hey what's up guys so I have a question regarding my next move towards real estate investing. I'm a new real estate investor I currently own a triplex which I house hacked and used my FHA credit. My question to you guys is if you have about 150k to invest would you rather invest it towards 2 small multi family homes (Duplex or Triplex) or a larger multi family like a 6-8 unit building? It seems the bigger properties bring lower returns.

I would recommend you follow your goals and do what works for you. In my own case using dollars invested compared to operating expenses and resulting cash flow I make easily double from my 12 unit compared to what I make in my duplexes. The duplexes are much easier to sell however if that were a consideration. Investors make and lose money in every type of REI you can think of.
