If you’re one of these aspiring investors who want to delve in the industry, the experts recommend you follow the real estate mogul, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s secrets to building a profitable real estate empire.

The Humble Beginnings

In an interview with the real-estate investing author, Peter Harris, Arnold said he started his empire by building a six-plex apartment building. When the real estate mogul first came to the United States, Arnold needed to find a way to earn money to pay his bills without working a 9-5 job.

So he entered several competitions, seminars, and workshops and he saved every penny he earned to fund his six-plex in Santa Monica. Arnold decided to buy an income-generating property first rather than buying his own home to live. Otherwise, he’ll end up being in debt for many years without earning in return.

So, Arnold lived in apartment No. 6 while he rented out the other five rooms. He then saved the income he generated until he sold the apartment to buy a 12-unit apartment building.
