When you think of short-term rentals, you may think of Air Bnb or Vrbo, but did you know short-term rentals were around long before those companies made them popular?
In this episode, I speak with Alex Jarbo, the founder and CEO of Sargon Investments, who has an MBA with a concentration in real estate development.
His company, Sargon Investments, is a short-term rental resort development firm whose mission is to provide above-average, double-digit returns to our accredited investors.
He’s also a former Marine, a regular contributor to some of the world’s top real estate investing podcasts, and the host of the YouTube channel Alex Builds, where he teaches how to build and manage short-term rentals properly.
He discusses the short-term rentals he has right now, what attributed to their success, and his strategies in the current market to keep them successful. He also tells us how we can invest passively with short-term rentals and how you can get started investing in this booming asset class.
