If you are serious about real estate investing, you need to always be ready to act quickly. Bill shares a personal experience where he was presented with a great deal but, because he was not ready, lost an excellent opportunity. In this episode, he discusses the top areas where we always need to be ready for that perfect deal.
In order to be successful at multifamily real estate investing you need to know something very important. Nizan Mozery, one of my recent guests pointed out in episode #077, it’s like running multiple marathons at the same time and trying to win and cross the finish lines all at the same time.

Spoke with him regularly, visited and looked at properties, always gave him feedback on the deals he presented, etc. We have been talking for a while and he has been sending me deals but they were not that great – already listed and the numbers never worked.
A couple of weeks ago, he calls me with his first “off-market” deal. It sounded too good to be true:
