All About David Lindahl

Updated on April 6, 2011

Dave Lindahl Real Estate Tycoon

This Lens is all about Dave Lindahl

Starting as a dead broke landscaper living in a 1 bedroom apartment Dave Lindahl started buying and selling multi-unit properties to create a better life for himself. With no Real Estate experience he created systems that allowed him to create enough monthly positive cash flow to retire within 3 1/2 years.

But he didn't retire, he still buys and sells properties today and those systems have helped him to create a portfolio of over 7,000 units and a monthly positive cash flow that equals what most people make in a year! And the best part is ... he doesn't deal with a single tenant.

David is considered as the Nation's Leading Expert in Buying and Selling Multi- Family and Self Storage Properties. David regularly shares the same stage as Robert Kiyosaki, Tony Robbins and Donald Trump.

Among his numerous accomplishments, David has authored many books and courses including: Emerging Real Estate Markets, Apartment House Riches, and The Real Estate Marketers' Tool Kit.

David Lindahl, also known as the "Apartment King®" He is the author of four popular, money-making home study courses: "Apartment House Riches," "How To Estimate And Renovate Houses for Huge Profits," "Managing For Maximum Profits" and "The Real Estate Investors Marketing Tool Kit". Dave is co-author of his newest program "Self Storage Investing Riches". He also teaches live events to overflow crowds from across the country.

Dave Lindahl Biography

David Lindahl has rehabbed over 560 properties in the last ten years, and owns over 1,100 apartment units. Starting out as a struggling landscaper with no experience in construction, Dave accepted an opportunity to renovate a foreclosed house for a local bank during the winter, when there was no possibility for landscaping in Boston. His original goal was only to earn enough for his family to eat.

After completing the restoration on the first house, he did another and after overcoming his preliminary fears, Dave began to buy and hold small apartment buildings for himself. Dave was initially afraid of speaking with sellers and of negotiating deals. He was concerned about procuring the financing he needed. He was a real estate novice being told that investing in real estate was a "scam" and he was destined to lose his shirt.

One day Dave saw Harry Helmsley speak in New York. He told the story of how he started out with nothing and eventually purchased the Empire State Building. Helmsley had made all of his money through apartments; he said that he loved the idea of other people paying his mortgage through rent and that sounded good to Dave.

Dave intensively researched and identified four phases of the Real Estate Market Cycle, and the strategies necessary to use in each stage for maximum profit. At any given time there are 10"20 markets around the United States that reveal themselves in Dave's system as "Emerging". Dave learned how to find these markets using universally available data. He then created a system on how to buy in these markets and he rapidly became even wealthier, much faster.

Within the first 14 months, Dave's apartment buildings created a positive cash flow of over $10,000 monthly for him and his family. Within three and a half years, Dave had reached multi-millionaire status.

One secret of Dave's quick climb from being broke to millionaire status is his combination of special techniques for investing in apartments. He discovered a way to make big payoffs in apartments wothout having the headaches of dealing with tenants.

Dave uses the techniques he teaches. He did not have help when he started, he was almost penniless in a town where the cost of living had skyrocketed. So the principles he discusses in his materials are prepared for individuals in the same predicament: overworked, no spare time, no capital, terrible credit and no real estate experience. To make Dave's dream your reality all you require is an open mind and a good attitude.

A simple piece of advice from Dave is that most people look for the difficult, complex way. People believe that they will find the best results with the most intricate scheme. But Dave says the best way to start in Real Estate is to surround yourself with people that are succeeding at what you want to do. Start out slowly and modestly, begin with a goal to work towards. The most astounding monuments were built one brick at a time and Dave believes that everyone can have a real estate fortune.

      Dave reminds me of some my own teacher. I also learned in the trenches and educated myself in the business as far as possible. I love the success story of self made men like Dave's. He did in on the East Coast. I think the West Coast is more friendly. Gotta be real tough on the East Coast. But it doesn't matter where you are. Timing is everything! If you like check out my Los Angeles investment property site and blog. It owes to Dave's framework.
