Becoming financially independent through real estate investing isn’t an elite act. Anyone can do it, at any time—and more of us could be doing it than are, says best-selling author Lance Edwards, creator of the Multifamily Success and Raising Private Money systems. Over the last seven years, he’s taught hundreds of students how they too can build wealth with investments in small apartment complexes and multifamily housing.

In between those million dollar deals and large apartment complexes, there is a revolving door of small and mid-size apartments available for investors just like you.
