Today’s guest, Amanda Cruise, worked a W2 job while she and her husband taught themselves the ins and outs of real estate investing — specifically mobile home parks. They scaled their business, Voyage Investing, in just a few years, and now they’re full-time investors with a growing portfolio.

How were they able to scale so quickly? Here’s how Mike DeHaan sums up their strategy: “So your whole formula for how you’ve gotten where you’re at is investing in education, invest in your network, take action.”

In this episode, you’ll hear their business operations and processes, including how they find leads, get financing, and the criteria they look for in a property. Amanda also shares what resources helped them to learn about a new asset class in a short amount of time, and offers up a huge tip for dealing with lenders, as well as great advice for new real estate investors.

Tune in and take notes from Amanda’s inspiring real estate journey, and find out why mobile home parks are a great investment opportunity!
