Where Real Estate Investors & Landlords Go for Success

EP096 How a Medical Scare turned him into a "Lifestyle Investor". Mission Statements, Flips, Buy & Hold, and Self Storage Investing with Charlie Kao

Charlie Kao negotiated a Commercial Land Lease for one of his father's properties when he was only 25 years old.  But it wasn't until he had a medical scare that he began taking real estate investing seriously and created a mission statement that would guide him as a "Lifestyle Investor".

Today Charlie shares the many types of investments he's succeeded with, as well as the big loss he took on one of his flips.  Charlie discusses the lessons he learned from his father, why he likes to live in his flips, his airbnb experiences, tools he uses to enhance his efficiency, returns he strives for, and why he under-prices his rentals.

You'll also learn Charlie's personal reasons for working with certain non-profit organizations as a way to give back to refugee youths, as well as his future plans to invest in self-storage, and the unique criteria he's using that will lead to bigger profits.
