Welcome to Invest Anywhere, our monthly series on long-distance real estate investing.
Invest Anywhere airs on the First Friday of each month and is co-hosted by Paula Pant and Suni Rao.
In this two-part episode, we first tackle the data points needed to assess various investment locations within your city of choice.
We will cover seven specific neighborhood characteristics to review before diving into deal finding, and three things to look at once you’ve found a specific deal to evaluate.
Then, we interview Kristen Lazure, the producer behind the Netflix movie “Get Smart With Money”. The movie follows 4 financial coaches — Tiffany Aliche, Peter Adeney, Ross Mac and myself — as we help 4 people who are struggling with some aspect of their financial lives.
Tune in for behind-the-scenes movie insights and enjoy today’s episode!
