No matter what craziness happens with the economy, someone
is always going to need a $500 a month place to live.

Avery Carl is the CEO and founder of the Short Term Shop, a real estate team that helps investors acquire short term rental properties in the most recession-resistant markets, and trains them on the methods that led her out of the corporate rat race and into financial freedom. She bought her first rental property at age 26 on a $37,000 salary. Through strategically investing in short term rental properties in mature vacation rental markets, she was a millionaire by 31. She now owns a portfolio of 24 properties, and shares how she turned her first property into a million-dollar business!
