Our SDIRA Socials are getting BIGGER and BETTER with more speakers, more vendors, and more networking!

This November, we are doing a deep dive into the rental market, uncovering what makes them a popular investment. We’ll discuss the different types of rentals and the advantages of each so you can discover which type is right for you. Are you interested in the consistency of income and lower turnover of long-term rentals, or the higher income potential and flexibility of short-term, vacation rentals? Maybe you would rather go for something in-between and cater to relocating families and traveling professionals with a mid-term rental? We’re bringing in industry experts Kirstin Gerst, Vivian Yip, and Eddie Gant to present on each type of rental, and then we’ll wrap up the presentations with a panel discussion and open the floor to your questions. If you’ve been debating getting into the rental market, you won’t want to miss this event!

6-7 pm – Networking and enjoy free beer/wine and dinner

7-8pm – Panelist Presentations and Q&A (will be streamed live on YouTube and Facebook)

8pm – After presentation, attendees may pitch deals to the in-person audience
