Can anyone invest in real estate?
No matter your age or gender, you can invest in real estate by educating yourself and finding a mentor who will guide you through your journey. This is what Ruth Hiller believes and is sharing with her fellow women investors who are still navigating the seemingly complex world of multifamily investing.
Ruth calls herself an “accidental businesswoman” due to a legacy asset that she’s forced to study to capitalize on its value. Years later, she founded YesMF! to help her investors grow their wealth and passive income through multifamily real estate.
She has also invested in more than 2,000 multifamily properties as a general and limited partner.

Find a mentor and educate yourself before you invest in your first deal. I invested in multifamily 22 years ago. I had to do a 1031 exchange and I had a bad feeling about it. I did it anyway. I didn't know about due diligence. I didn't know about lease audits. Have I had a mentor back then, then I would have avoided losing money on that deal.
