What’s the secret to choosing your investing strategy? If you ask a dozen investors, you’ll most likely get a dozen answers. My guest today is Phoenix investor Marcus Maloney, and he has done it all including single family, multi-family and commercial investing. Does he have a favorite investing strategy? He does! However, when it came to choosing his favorite investing strategy, it took a little while. Like a lot of investors, he tried different strategies.
Marcus has completed over 3.3 million in wholesale transactions, but he is a buy and hold investor at heart. He follows the BRRR strategy of buy, rehab, rent and refinance. Marcus has purchased commercial property as well including a school. You’re also going to learn about his passion project in this show.
Marcus is really good at turning marginal profits into a significant equity position. He is a mentor to many investors, a licensed real estate agent in Phoenix Arizona, and he has a new podcast which I'll tell you about a little later.
Here are a few of the things in this show:
- How a high school drop-out gets an MBA and builds a successful real estate investing business
- Which strategies Marcus started out with, and why he chose the strategies he invests in today
- Whether he prefers single family homes or multifamily properties today, and the pros and cons of each one
- Investing out of state; is it a good idea or a bad idea?
- Why he invests in two very different areas; Chicago and Phoenix
- Whether he thinks it’s an advantage or a disadvantage for investors to have a real estate license (and why)
- His advice for folks that want to be both an investor and a real estate agent
- His final advice do you have folks that want to start or grow their REI business
