what is your REI behavior?

hi BP

What do you invest in? And how do you go about obtaining your own investments?


A. Do you find a niche and just do that?

Are you a Flipper or buy/holder only? Residential or commercial only?


B. Do you do whatever makes sense?

Flexible, go with the flow. Educated yourself if it new and go for it if it makes sense?


C. Do you plan, scheme and target one?

Say I want a to do a rehab/buy-hold/apt/development and find one?


I have a pretty diverse portfolio.

Flipped, buy-hold residential and commercial.

Single family and multi unit.


I fall in the whatever makes sense category. BUT I also plan and scheme.

I like to learn and do something completely different each time.

My investments projects are just because I can... Or the opportunity was there.

My first project I flipped a condo

Wanted to do new construction, so did a live in flip.

Wanted to try commercial, did a buy/hold

Wanted a challenge, bought a 5 mixed used bldg.

Meanwhile flipping in between when opportunity arise.

Now, I secretly want to do some kind of development....

I'm always looking so who knows, I don't even know...hahaha. As long as it makes sense and I have the capital, we strike;)

Experience makes each deal "easier" and faster to analyze.

Hello, I am David. Well, first things first... I am a relatively small investor and I mainly invest in the residential sector. Single-family houses are my specialty (sort of), and I plan only for bigger houses. Usually I am a flipper going along with the flow, making as much as I can for the moment.

My REI behaviour looks like this:

Some might call it erratic, seemingly without purpose and a bit scattered.  I prefer the term "flexible".
