Greetings from the “Land of the Rising Sun!” Today, Jason welcomes you all from Niseko, Japan! It’s fitting that Jason and Neal talk about demographic collapse while visiting Japan because Japan is facing a drastic population decline.
A very big thank you as well to all who attended the Empowered Investor LIVE conference! And to all who missed it and/or want to have the video recordings, we will have those recordings available to you in about a week, so please stay tuned. You can purchased all of the event recordings HERE.
And today Jason welcomes the ‘mad scientist of multifamily’ Neal Bawa of Grocapitus investments. They talk about how demography affects real estate, where the housing market is and where it might be headed and the factors affecting your investments. Neal is a technologist who is universally known in the real estate circles as the Mad Scientist of Multifamily. Besides being one of the most in-demand speakers in commercial real estate, Neal is a data guru, a process freak, and an outsourcing expert.
Neal treats his $1+ billion-dollar multifamily portfolio as an ongoing experiment in efficiency and optimization. The Mad Scientist lives by two mantras. His first mantra is that: We can only manage what we can measure. His second mantra is that: Data beats gut feel by a million miles. These mantras and a dozen other disruptive beliefs drive profit for his 800+ investors.
“If you want to have a country, you must have children.” – Jason Hartman
“Real estate is extraordinarily difficult to disrupt.” – Neal Bawa
