How does one transition from doing simple houses to more complex deals? That’s the topic on today’s episode of the Szikov Podcast, where we sit down once again with Jered Sturm, a real estate investor from the Midwest who’s made the transition from doing all his own work on single family houses to purchasing larger properties. In this episode, we dig in deep on the purchase of his newest 42-unit apartment complex and the unique “value-add” ideas he discovered that made this property a home run!
