Lance’s book, How to Make Big Money in Small Apartments, couldn’t have come at a more opportunistic time than the current economic conditions. With hedge funds buying up large, full apartment complexes because they must move huge chunks of money—anywhere from $3 million to those costing hundreds of millions— small and mid-sized apartments are gold mines gone untouched by the hedge funds. In between those million dollar deals and large apartment complexes, there is a revolving door of small and mid-size apartments available for investors.
