Today we talk with Albert Auger who shares his story of how he
went from broker to developer to investor. Albert is a successful
real estate investor who's cash flow allows him to live in Europe
while he continues to invest in Florida. His model is "keep it
simple" and his strategy is value-add, stay in the property for 3-5
years, stabilize it, then sell it.
Albert gives some practical advice such as suggesting going
out and doing your own research. Don't assume that just because
somebody says property is "prime property" that it actually is
prime property - ask "why" it is prime property. Also, try to talk
to people in person to build good relationships, or at least get on
the phone and talk to people and start making connections.
