Investing in sober living facilities may not be the first thing that comes to mind when we talk about building a real estate portfolio. But if you knew how much they made, you might take a second look. We often focus on short-term rentals, long-term rentals, or fix-and-flip properties. But one of the best things about choosing real estate as an investment medium is its wide range and opportunities for creativity. People out there are house hacking, wholesaling, investing in mobile homes, and buying up parking lots. The options are truly endless.
So, where do we start? Sometimes, the best real estate investments are the ones that mean something more to us than cash flow. Devana Came and Reid Stadelman saw a gap in their community, and they filled it. They turned their real estate investment into a sober living facility to help people in recovery, and gave them a safe, structured place to stay while earning (mostly) passive income and building their investment portfolio.
In this episode, this husband and wife dynamic duo tells us all about their creative real estate investments that cash flow like nothing else. We talk about what a sober living facility is (hint: it’s not a rehab center), how and why they built theirs, how to find and screen tenants, and tips for reducing tenant turnover rates. These things don’t just apply to sober living facilities. Devana and Reid offer advice that applies to any real estate investment journey.
