Podcast 94 House Hacking Multifamily

Starting out in the world of house flipping and landlording can be taxing and a lot to take on at first, but it’s all a learning experience, which is why we want you to get to know a master at both, Michael Siekerka.

Michael’s first real estate investing experience was just six months after he graduated college, when he occupied his first purchase by doing a fix and flip. After years of rehabbing properties by partnering with friends for quick income, he eventually found his niche in buy and hold properties. In this informative episode, Michael shares with us how he manages his properties, the criteria he uses to find new places to rent out and the methods he follows to work successfully with hard money lenders and agents to boost his revenue. This is a show to hear if you’re in the market for success!
