Key Takeaways:

"I know student rental type of property will allow us to get a win-win situation for the tenants and for us as well."- Ricardo Figueroa

"The long-term buy and hold allows me to not get involved in the property, because once it's rented, I don't have to touch it until a turn over. The active appreciation, and the cash flow is what I like."- Ricardo Figueroa

"One of the things I have been able to develop is being very analytical on the purchases because for any investor it's a lot of money, a lot of cash that are going to these deals, a lot of responsibility that you have to commit to it. One is to yourself, to the banks and, and other people involved."- Ricardo Figueroa

"I don't buy the properties just because they're good properties in terms of the way they look because of sentimental value. I buy the property because it makes sense to the business analysis I have created for."- Ricardo Figueroa
