He was supposed to close the next day and the private equity firm decided they no longer wanted to do the deal. Talk about overcoming obstacles.
Prashant Kumar is the CEO of MyRealtyGains.com. He is a spiritually-minded, multifamily operator based in Long Island, NY. He focuses on his mindset and spirituality to create abundance and overcome setbacks. He began investing in real estate, and in his first year, he acquired two single-family homes, a 24-unit, and a 72-unit multifamily apartment. He ran out of his own money and decided to start working with other investors through apartment syndication.
His strategy is to acquire and hold stable, income-producing multifamily apartment complexes in emerging US markets with long term capital appreciation. He likes Midwest and Southeast markets such as Indianapolis, Louisville, Huntsville, and Atlanta for their balance of cash flow and appreciation potential. He shares how he manages deal flow across multiple markets and the importance of building strong relationships with brokers, property managers, and investors.
Prashant focuses on doing JV and Syndication deals in both multifamily and assisted living properties. He spends a lot of time teaching others through his meetup in NY and his online mastermind groups. In this episode, he talks about going from a corporate job to real estate investing, what he looks for in investing markets, and how he overcame the last-minute change from the private equity firm.
