Simple question: how to count doors?

2 Replies

How do you count how many doors one owns? I get that if you own a sfr, that’s one door. But if you own, say 10% of a 100 unit apartment would say you own 10 doors or 100? But depending on your answer, if you have debt on the sfr, do you only own a percentage of that? So where do you draw the line? Thanks.

Hi Matthew,

In general conversation you could say it anyway you want.

Some people say "I own an apartment complex with several other investors, we own X doors".

Good Luck!
