If you’re reading this article, then I don’t think I need to convince you why apartment syndication is a great investment strategy. Hopefully you’re here because you’d like to gain real estate knowledge when and where it’s convenient for you—like during the daily to commute to your 9 to 5 (for now, at least)!
There are many awesome podcasts out there for multifamily investors, but here are my top five picks.
