Should you switch to investing in self-storage? Sergio Altomare explains why he left multifamily and is finding great success now with 14 self-storage facilities.

After transitioning into real estate as a side business in 2012, Sergio partnered with his wife Corinn to start Hearthfire Holdings, a boutique real estate investment and property management company. In just eight short years, Hearthfire Holdings has built a portfolio of more than $50M in assets under management and syndicated over $12M in assets, returning more than $2M in profit and 25 percent IRR to investors. Property types have spanned small multi-family, commercial, retail, and self-storage properties.

3 Pillars

  1. Focusing on cash flow and investing that cash flow into yourself and assets
  2. Disciplined responsible use of leverage
  3. Investing in things that scale
