The vast majority of women perform a number of unpaid jobs every day, from childcare to housekeeping to food preparation. There is simply no time to pick up another job! But today’s guest argues that there is a way for women to generate substantial income that doesn’t require a lot of time and energy – apartment building investing.
Whitney Nicely believes that every woman should control her own destiny by investing in real estate as soon and as much as possible. Born into a family of entrepreneurs, Whitney was inspired to invest in real estate as a creative outlet that would allow her the freedom to be her own boss. She flipped her first house in 2009, and has since grown her portfolio to include 17 residential houses, 19 apartment units and seven chunks of vacant land across east Tennessee.
Whitney’s philosophy is to take action first and figure it out as she goes. Her bold, ‘throw spaghetti at the wall’ strategy has proven successful, and now she teaches women how to invest in real estate with no money, no credit and no bank necessary. Listen in as she shares why she prefers apartments to single family homes, how she landed and financed her multi-family properties, and her advice around building a reputation as a local real estate authority. Learn why women need to start building a portfolio – today!
