Key Takeaways:

"If I was starting off investing again today, I would build that network of investors so you have someone to lean on as you go through that journey."- Austin Yeh

"For a lot of us, we follow a ton of social media influencers in the real estate space and everyone tries to grab the social media influencers' time. But that's not really the people that you should be reaching out to. Reach out to the people who have maybe one or two more properties more than you who are just slightly more experienced, but can still have the time to build a stronger relationship with you." - Austin Yeh

"One thing to be cognizant is the tenant laws."- Austin Yeh

"I can't stress enough that you wanna invest in a good location. And even if you choose to not invest in a great location, just make sure the current tenant quality is okay."- Austin Yeh

"One of the big things for me is that when I'm doing a deal, the numbers need to make sense off the bat. It needs to cash flow from day one." - Austin Yeh

"I need to see a clear exit usually within six months, ideally less than six months. I feel like the longer you are in the market, the more exposed you are to the fluctuations, especially with the uncertainty of everything going on." - Austin Yeh

"One of the big things I've been shifting towards in 2023 is to do less single-family homes and more smaller multi's where I can diversify the income among multiple people." - Austin Yeh
