Every real estate investor starts somewhere. Deciding how you want to invest is one of the toughest decision you’ll make in the beginning, and you’ll likely find yourself caught between a few big choices: commercial or residential real estate and, if residential, single-family or multifamily properties?
(We’re not here to debate the pros and cons between the types of investments. If you’re interested in that conversation, we’ve covered it extensively here!)
Single-family properties make up a massive portion of the investing market: they’re an easy place to start for new investors, largely because they’re more affordable than buying an apartment complex or an office building.
