Why invest in Multi-Family-Residences (MFR)?

As a real estate investor, it is worth considering different categories of properties and how their unique benefits and risks could affect your portfolio needs. Before diving into the many potential financial advantages of multi-family residences (MFRs), it is important to understand how MFRs differ from other property types.

What is a multi-family residence?
