Real estate podcasts are an excellent way to learn more about investing. However, finding the right real estate podcast depends on your goals and needs. When we launched Target Market Insights, I wanted to create a multifamily podcast that focused on finding the best places to invest, tapping into the market research used by prominent investors. Since then we’ve evolved the podcast to include marketing strategies to build a business or brand and have renamed it, Target Market Insights: Multifamily + Marketing.
To date, we have released 140 episodes with fantastic guests, giving their best tips and secrets of success. People often ask me which episode they should listen to first and that will depend on what you’re seeking. But instead of just scrolling through the catalog of episodes, I thought it might be helpful to highlight our most popular podcast shows. If you are ready to leap into multifamily investing, check out our top 20 podcast episodes below.
