Key Takeaways:

 

"The number one thing that attracts me to real estate from an investment point of view is the passive nature of it in the sense that compared to things like the stock market, which are a lot more volatile, real estate, to me has always been more manageable risk, more calculated risk. And that's something I'm a lot more comfortable with." - Cory Beattie

 

"The other thing that interests me about the industry itself is that there are so many different ways that you can get involved in so many different ways that you can actually make some money and make a living." - Cory Beattie

 

"Multifamily is a nice way to spread your risk, because if you compare that with single-family, all your eggs are in that one basket in that one house." - Cory Beattie

 

"Right now, there's actually a lot of really attractive financing for multifamily. Believe it or not, you can get sub-four and sub-five interest rates. I can't think of a better time to get involved with that type of investment. It's quite attractive compared to what I've seen in the last ten years." - Cory Beattie

 

"The number one thing for people to keep in mind is that, for me, the biggest lesson I've learned is you always have to have an exit strategy in mind." - Cory Beattie

 

"I think it's great for everyone to have some real estate in their portfolio simply because of the returns. But on the flip side of that, it's not necessarily for everyone in terms of being hands-on." - Cory Beattie
