Hypergrowth in multifamily real estate has led to white-hot competition for available properties, resulting in waiting lists of would-be buyers, all of whom seem ready and willing to take on more risk for less reward than ever before.

But Sam Liebman, a seasoned investor in commercial property who has owned substantial interests in over 70 properties during the past 30 years, cautions that instead of getting caught up in the frenzy and making a reckless purchase, it’s critical to carry out on-the-ground research.

Mr. Liebman joins us for this Bizgnus Interview Podcast to talk about mastering the core fundamentals of real estate systematically, how to decipher where to increase value, and more.

“Multi-family, especially garden apartment complexes, contain all the basic fundamentals that you can carry over to any other sector,” he says.  “Once you learn the fundamentals of multi-family, then you can easily transition to office buildings, or retail, etcetera. If I just focused on retail, there would be so many fundamentals that would be lost.”

Mr. Liebman is founder and CEO of WealthWay Equity Group LLC, a New York-based private equity and real estate development company. His investments have ranged from multifamily communities, office buildings and shopping centers to the ground up construction of a luxury 21-story condominium development in Manhattan. He is also CEO of Rolling Cash Realty Inc., a real estate management company, as well as a partner in Tepper & Co., a certified public accounting firm.

His new book is “Harvard Can’t Teach What You Learn from the Streets: The Street Success Guide to Building Wealth through Multi-Family Real Estate,” (Made for Success Publishing, Jan. 11, 2022).
