Single Family investor making his way to Multi-Family

1 Reply

I have been a SF home investor focusing on out of state  short term rentals to bring better returns in this market. While this has worked well for me in the last few years, it is time to scale.   

1.  If I were to use the same strategy to slowly start acquiring multi-family properties,  can I do the same for short-term rentals. 

2.  Is multi-family construction an option vs a regular MF acquisition?

Looking forward to your thoughts.

The only issue I see is the competition for Multi-Family right now. Cap Rates have dropped to an incredible low for existing properties. Regarding the second question, I think it depends on your construction costs and rental rates in the area you plan to build a MF property in. Regardless of whether you are investing in SFR, MF, NPLs, etc, it's all just one big math problem. Good luck to you!
