John Casmon - investing - apartments

Today’s show is all about investing in apartments. My guest is John Casmon the co-founder of Chicago based Casmon Capital Group.  John controls and actively manages over $2.5M in real estate holdings, including a commercial apartment community with his partner that also happens to be his wife.

He is also a blogger, a podcaster, a dad and just an all-around nice guy.

John started out in small multi-family properties and is currently working on a 192 unit apartment in San Antonio.  It’s a pretty safe bet to say that he has figured out how to make money investing apartments.

Listen in as he tells you how he got his start with what is now commonly called “house hacking”.
