Tweetable Quotes:

“I think when you look at risk-adjusted returns and look at timespan and you know the ability to focus elsewhere with your time, it's really not comparable to anything else.” - Sam Silverman

“So you want to see a delta between the property class in the area class is that's likely how much you can go push the rents and push the property” - Sam Silverman

“Never do 15 year loans, whatever the banks want to tell you that it's all BS.  So avoid 15 year loans at all costs, especially if you're in the earlier portions of your career.” - Sam Silverman
