This week’s episode of the Real Estate Investing for Cashflow Podcast features Dan Genzel.

Dan's experience runs the spectrum including industrial properties, student housing, condo conversions, office, multifamily, and just about everything else.


“That is such a good long-term asset. My kids will deal with that property. Because once these tenants get into that university, and the university continues to get bigger and bigger, it’s just such a good long-term tenant that just builds good customers whether they’re students or faculty. Since the university isn’t going anywhere, it’s a good property to own.”

“I bought a 40-unit apartment building very close to the college and I and determined that there were no condos available for this particular neighborhood and area around the university. So, what I did is I bought that apartment building for about 50 a door and I think I put in about 15 or 20 on average per door then I turned around and sold them for about $130,000.00 and I’ll tell you what; every one of those were bought by a student’s parent. It’s a phenomenal investment and goes up about 5-10% every time one of those things turns.”
