Real Estate Investor Blog
Welcome! This blog was created for multifamily and commercial property investors in the San Francisco Bay and Monterey Bay areas. We love sharing a ridiculous amount of useful information about real estate investing. We publish articles on local investor news, investment strategies, financing, underwriting, management tips and other tricks-of-the-trade. We also write at length about case studies based on actual deals we’ve completed, or those our clients have done. If you have questions or need any advice, feel free to reach out to us:
