Real Estate Investing Profit Masters by Cory Boatright

I am amped about today’s episode of REIP. I haven’t been this excited for an interview in a really long time. My guest today is totally changing the scene through his investment strategies and his faith, and I couldn’t be more psyched to have him on today. Paul Moore is the real estate investor behind Smith Mountain Homes and Wellings Capital, and he’s got the perfect balance between earning and giving back. This interview is one of my favorites, so strap in and get ready to have your mind blown. And please watch us on the video because Paul’s got amazing charts and graphs that really illustrate how his multi-family investing strategy works.

Paul started out flipping properties like the rest of us, but how he got into multi-family investing is really interesting. He shares today how he launched an entrepreneurial venture in Detroit, got bored, and started flipping houses before flipping was even a thing. He started with mobile homes and moved up into waterfront properties. Things got tough when the housing bubble popped, like it did for most of us, but his recovery strategy was all about giving back. He was giving to others when he had nothing and it paid off in a huge way. He’s now working with multi-million dollar investments and teaching other investors how to benefit from the low risk and tax cuts of commercial investment in apartments and multi-family homes. Be sure to watch our interview video because Paul is sharing his graphs and his work illustrating how multigenerational profits work and how you can cash in on multifamily properties and investing. Start video at the 25 minute mark to see Paul’s charts and graphs that cover the on-going transformation of the housing market as we move through the 21st century.
