REIA 109 Paul Moore: The Difference between Investing and Speculating and Why it Matters

Paul Moore has been investing in real estate for over 2 decades since selling his company to a publicly traded firm. He is the author of 3 books on real estate investing and he is the founder of Wellings Capital, a commercial real estate investment fund manager.

Main Points:

  • I thought I was a full-time investor… but I was a full-time speculator. I made and lost a lot of money on my path to learning how to truly invest.  
  • The power of a dollar in commercial real estate – how to force appreciation.  
  • The power of the tide and the importance of the swimmer in the CRE value equation. 
  • Why is a multifamily author not investing in apartments (right now)? 
  • The power of investing in self-storage. 
  • Why we love one of America’s most overlooked asset classes (mobile home parks).
