Episode Description: Paul Moore, partner in Wellings Capital, joins host Jordan Goodman to discuss Wellings Capital and their highly successful Class B multi-family facility investment strategy and investor opportunities. Moore, is the author of ‘The Perfect Investment: Creating Enduring Wealth from the Historic Shift To Multi-Family Housing.’ Moore and Wellings Capital consistently secure high return low risk outcomes from well-considered, prudent investments by buying Class B commercial multi family properties. Wellings makes significant changes to the physical structures, management, and marketing, resulting in increased returns for investors. Investors in experience returns in the neighborhood of 5-10% cash-on-cash each year, and then a total return, including principal paydown and appreciation on equity, of 14-20% annually. Pretty healthy considering how risk averse multi family investment really is! Investors get current cash flow generated from operations, typically paid out on a quarterly basis.
