Course Description

Investing in multi-family properties has become a popular investment strategy among real estate entrepreneurs since the financial crises of 2008. The demand for rental apartments has surged as many home owners have lost their properties due to foreclosure while new home buyers struggle to obtain bank financing.

This course will teach you the various ways you can profit from the recent multi-family boom. The course consists of easy-to-follow training videos that offer practical, actionable advice. You will learn the exact steps you need to take to find, analyze, and close your first deal!

Instructor Biography

RealEstate U, Honest and Practical Real Estate Investing Courses

RealEstateU is an online real estate school that offers honest, practical, and actionable real estate investing and salespersons courses.

RealEstateU was founded by Andrew Anic, an NYU Grad student, and Ciprian Morariu in 2013. Both Andrew and Ciprian were aspiring real estate investors and developers in NYC, but continuously saw a lack of quality real estate education on the market. Graduate school was too theoretical, while the real estate 'gurus' were selling courses for thousands of dollars that lacked any real depth.

So, Andrew and Ciprian set out to find experienced and successful real estate investors, who are on the front lines buying properties on a daily basis, and had them teach what they know.

The result?
A series of detailed courses that offer the blueprints RealEstateU instructors use to profit as real estate investors.

The courses consist of easy-to-follow training videos that break down the steps taken to find, fund, and close deals.

After taking a RealEstateU course, you will have the fundamental knowledge you need to set out on your own.
