1184: Client Case Study: SFRs to Apartments with Greg Scott & Population Density's Impact on Real Estate Prices
Jason Hartman begins today's episode from the city of Shanghai, one of the largest (and densest) cities in the world. Since he's been in town he's started thinking about the importance of population density on real estate. It impacts everything from quality of life to desirability of businesses to the pricing of every unit.
Then Jason talks with client Greg Scott about his journey from accidental landlord to an owner of multifamily properties. Greg and Jason examine why people don't know whether they're winning or losing, how Greg was able to continue investing through the Great Recession, and what sort of demographics are making being a landlord look better and better.
