How do you identify real estate markets to invest in? If you’re a real estate investor who doesn't know where or what to look for, you won’t make much money. Instead, you’ll lose money by making bad investment decisions. Do the math and run numbers to make the right investment. Or, don’t get into the marketplace because everything is priced for perfection. Today, Clint Coons of Anderson Business Advisors talks to Neal Bawa, founder and CEO of Grocapitus, a commercial real estate investment company. Also, Neal is the CEO of MultifamilyU, an apartment investing education company. He’s known as the Mad Scientist of Multifamily and uses the power of numbers to acquire properties and create profit for investors.
