Mitch Stephen: How to Invest into Homes and Storage Units

How to Invest into Homes and Storage Units

Mitch Stephen has been a self-employed RE investor for 20+ years. His real estate investing career started at the age of 23 when he read “Nothing Down” by Robert Allen. Mitch, together with his wife, Tommi, and his daughter, Shannon purchased their fair share of local houses. Their company, Independence Day, Inc., has bought and sold over 1,500 properties in and about San Antonio, Tx since 1996. This company specializes in buying distressed properties with OPM and selling those properties with Owner Financing.

The Stephen family-built wealth by purchasing very affordable homes, selling them for double the cost, and owner financing the sale by creating a note to their buyer. In 1991 the family made plans to keep their wealth and create “Forever Money” by acquiring Self-Storage and Boat Storage facilities primarily around Canyon Lake where they live in Texas. They started with 13 boat storages around the lake, and the storage business has grown to over 1,600 storage doors in 14 locations. Mitch has authored 3 books and offers online education, group coaching, and full on mentorships.  He’s also been named one of the top RE investors to follow on Twitter.
