Thoughts on building new, say 4 unit build?

I'm in the rust belt and there is a lot of vacant land for cheap in nice areas. How're the returns vs reno and the process of financing and permitting?

Get ready for lots of nimby-ism. If you’re looking around and don’t see lots of similar to what you want to build and or lots of SF stuff then you’re in for a fight.

4Plexs are nice....

Look into senior living facilities. Build a small community of ranch-style homes with an epicenter for the community to come together and spend time with friends and family. #SilverTsunami

In 10-20 years you could subdivide and sell off the properties individually. #SafetyNet

Warning: You may make millions of dollars if you do this right. Good luck! 🙂

When is the right time to ask for a raise in salary? Nearing the end of my first year at current tech startup. We don’t have a formal process to request a merit or cost of living salary increase that I know of… there’s less then 15 people in our company. I made a big no no when joining the company and did not negotiate the salary before accepting. Should I informally chat about future compensation to my boss? He’s a pretty laid back guy and I think he may be flexible with me.
