More About This Show
When it comes to the world of real estate investing, Mark Ferguson has a storied past. He's done it all--buy and hold investing, flipping, commercial investing, and more. In fact, Mark began his real estate career as a real estate agent in 2001.

And up until a few years ago, all of Mark's properties were residential. He owns nearly 20 buy and hold rentals in Colorado. However, prices in that market continue to rise, and rental amounts can not keep up in order to bring in a high return.

Because of this, Mark decided to shift his investing strategy. He explains that at the time, he wasn't necessarily considering commercial real estate investing. However, a deal came across his desk that was too good to pass up. 

In February, Mark closed on an incredible project. He and his partner purchased a $2.1 million commercial strip mall. The building is over 68,000 square feet, is home to a grocery store, a coffee shop, and Mark's newest venture--his brokerage!

On today's show, Mark is walking us through his incredible real estate journey. We'll talk about his tips for securing a successful commercial investment, and how to find the best houses for flipping. We'll talk about appreciation, Mark's goals, blogging, and so much more! Please join us for episode 326 of Investing in Real Estate!
