Are limiting beliefs stopping you from becoming a multifamily investor? When Sterling White got his start in real estate, he was crashing in a friend’s den. He had no money in the bank and zero credit. But Sterling DID have a willingness to learn, and he understood that the best way to approach a potential mentor was to provide value.
Today, Sterling is a seasoned real estate investor and philanthropist based in Indianapolis. He got his start in 2009, building a portfolio of 150 SFH before transitioning to multifamily in 2017. To date, Sterling owns a total of 587 single- and multifamily units, and he is a frequent contributor to BiggerPockets. He also serves as the host of The Real Estate Experience podcast and author of From Zero to 400 Units: How I Found Another Path & Discovered Freedom Through Real Estate.
On this episode of Apartment Building Investing, Sterling joins me to explain how he got his start in real estate, working for a mentor (for free!) to find SFH buy-and-hold deals. He discusses his transition to multifamily, sharing his bold approach to finding off-market deals and the resources he uses to get in touch with property owners. Listen in for Sterling’s insight on providing value to attract investors and learn how to overcome the limiting beliefs that are keeping you from achieving financial freedom with multifamily investing!
