Episode 49: The Benefits of Storing Things versus Housing People
After completing his engineering degree in university, Fernando Angelucci began work in the corporate world to quickly realize that the corporate track was not a good fit. He turned to real estate at the age of 23 and after achieving success inside of 13 short months, he quit his full-time job and began investing in real estate full-time. He was heavily investing in both single-family and multifamily apartment buildings when after managing for a period, he learned the State where he held his portfolio was too tenant-friendly. After spending nearly a year trying to evict a professional tenant, he decided to pivot and focus on self-storage. In this episode, Fernando shares with us the benefits of self-storage, or as he puts it, the reasons why he prefers to store things, versus housing people.
