Where Real Estate Investors & Landlords Go for Success

EP378 How Understanding the MATH of Real Estate Will Help You Make More MONEY with Mark Updegraff

My guest today has a quantitative and repeatable process for identifying areas that will experience 20 to 30% appreciation over a five-year period.

Not only does Mark Updegraff have a background in science, technology, and mathematics, he also began his career at NASA, so I’m excited to see how that background has translated to his real estate development, management, and brokerage businesses.
