This podcast guesting of Neal Bawa is hosted by Jeannette Robinson of the REady2Scale - Real Estate Investing.
  • As much as rents have risen over the past several years, the gap between home ownership and renting is the largest in history by a very, very wide margin, according to Neal Bawa.
  • Neal is the CEO and Founder of Multifamily University and Grocapitus Investments, he’s a technologist who is universally known in real estate circles as the “Mad Scientist of Multifamily”.
  • As he looks at the current state of the markets, he sees “Build To Rent” as the hottest part of real estate right now. He believes that population demographic shifts are not only important, but they’re all that matters when selecting markets to invest in.
  • He’s looking at build-to-rent multifamily as “horizontal apartments” and it’s a market he expects to continue growing. He realizes that it doesn’t work everywhere, it uses a lot more land for one thing, so the location is important, perhaps on the edges of suburbs where land is cheaper and more available.
