Today we talk with David Drewett, owner of Property Hero. David provides a great service to Sarasota, FL by providing affordable housing in a market that's not affordable. He does this by investing in distressed multifamily properties, fixing them up and adding rooms in the living spaces, and then he rents out the rooms. The tenants share the kitchen and bathroom, and they also do the cleaning and light maintenance. It's a win-win since the community is happy to see buildings getting painted and fixed up while helping people get affordable housing, and it's a great business for David.
