It used to be that real estate was just for the wealthy. But technology changes and the shifting world of remote work has opened up opportunities like never before. From short-term rentals to investing in commercial real estate, the barrier to entry has never been less, and the upside has never been greater. In this episode of First In Line, we speak with Sam Parr (Founder of The Hustle, Co-Host of My First Million) and Ben Miller (Co-Founder of Fundrise) about all of the exciting ways the home has become arguably the most valuable asset you can own.
