47. From House Hacking to Multi-Family with Ramsey Blankenship

Join Mike Cavaggioni and Ramsey Blankenship on the 47th episode of the Average Joe Finances Podcast as they discuss the scalability of multi-family and the signs of a thriving real estate market. Ramsey Blankenship is a Navy Explosive Ordinance Technician, diving instructor, and one of the founders of Real Focus Capital. Here, they acquire and manage value-add, commercial multi-family properties in the Southeast. The company aims to provide high-yield risk-adjusted returns and generate passive income for its investors. Today, Ramsey shares his journey, from getting into real estate through house-hacking to investing in multi-family properties.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • “How I can afford this?” mentality and how to live the life you want while investing in anything, real estate, stock market, etc.
  • The value of “putting yourself out there” and how the best partnerships are outside your comfort zone.
  • The five market vital signs and how understanding macrostatistics can tell you what markets to invest in.
  • What goes into transitioning from residential to commercial real estate and the economy of scale.
  • The difference between investing in real estate versus other assets and the different cash flow means it provides.
  • And much more!
