If nothing else, investing in real estate is an adventure, as well as an ever-evolving learning process, where you can alter your focus to align with the needs of yourself, your clients, and your family. This week on The BiggerPockets Podcast, we’ll learn all about what it takes to branch out in your real estate investing endeavors with our guest Curt Bidwell.
Curt’s first real estate opportunity arose while he was working as a pastor, when a few good friends asked if he wanted to partner with them on a local fourplex. Since then, he’s acquired quite a portfolio of real estate, including sixplexes, duplexes, new construction, single family homes, townhomes, and mixed properties. He’s done it all — and now he’s even gotten his kids involved! Listen for interesting tips on how to creatively invest, the best ways to find good tenants, as well as how to encourage your kids to get interested in finances and real estate along the way.
