More About This Show

all the details of Kim's real estate strategy. We’ll talk about what he looks for in a property, the importance of property management companies, and how you can get started achieving financial freedom.

Kim’s first venture into real estate consisted of building apartments with his father. He inferred that it would be an easier process to purchase homes that were already built, and began looking for opportunities.

He started targeting properties that people didn’t want, as well as foreclosures. He didn’t have a lot of cash starting out; he initially built his business by taking over loans. When he eventually did have supplementary cash, he began buying foreclosures at auctions.

Kim has experience with a wide array of properties—he’s purchased apartments and single-family homes. He has taken over loans, invested in traditional financing, as well as discovered alternative sources.

He’s purchased homes in dire need of renovation, in addition to move in ready properties. He has experience working with different management companies, and today he has got a system down that allows him to own over 140 properties and earn a passive income.

The majority of his properties are in two specific areas: Los Angeles County, California, and St. Lucie County, Florida. He purchases in those areas because he lives in those areas. Kim believes in living close to his properties, because it is easier for his specific business model.
