On March 25, 2016, Jason Hartman joined Reed Goossens about the pros and cons of different kinds of investment properties.
Reed hosts the podcast "Investing in the US: An Aussie's Guide to US Real Estate", which is a podcast for investors and real estate entrepreneurs looking to break into the U.S. market.
Reed is an Australian making a go of it in the US. He moved to the US back in 2012. He went from buying small duplexes for $45,000 to raising money from investors to buy large multi family apartment communities across the US. To date Reed has been involved in the acquisition of over $60 mill. worth of multi family real estate. He certainly lives up to the ‘never say die’ Aussie attitude when it comes to being a successful entrepreneur.
