What kind of returns can a passive multifamily real estate investor expect? What if you could double your money in just five or six years? And pay little or nothing in the way of taxes?
Jan Larson spent 25 years in the high-stress world of semiconductor development, most recently working for Amazon. He had always been interested in real estate investing but did not want to deal with 3AM phone calls about clogged toilets. Five years ago, a colleague introduced him to a passive investing opportunity, and Jan was hooked. Today, he has invested in 28 multifamily deals involving 34 properties, and in January, Jan had enough passive income to quit his job.
On this episode, Jan joins me to discuss how his life has changed since he quit his job through passive investing in multifamily. He explains how living through the stock market meltdowns in 2000 and 2008 inspired him to diversify with apartment buildings, describing what he loves most about multifamily and sharing the returns passive investors can expect. Listen in for Jan’s advice on how to get started with passive investing and learn how he evaluates deals based on the sponsor and the submarket!

As multifamily investors, we’re all looking to build wealth and achieve financial freedom. The scary part is, we don’t have control over how much our money is worth. And as our government continues to print money with wild abandon and accumulate massive debt, the value of the US dollar declines. Yes, we’re smart to invest in physical assets like real estate to hedge against this kind of currency devaluation. But is there something else we could be putting our money in as an insurance policy of sorts? Something that increases in value as paper assets decline?
