Micro Real Estate FAQs
Q: What is Micro Real Estate?

A place for a Electric Vehicle Charger, Vending Machine, or even a parking spot are all examples of micro real estate properties. Check out this blog post for a more in depth answer to this question.
Q: How does a Micro-Property generate passive income?
A: The owner of the small micro-property rents out the micro-property to an owner/operator of a piece of hardware or machine that fits on the micro-property. The owner/operator of the machine generates income from their machine (like a vending machine or EV Charger) to pay rent to the property owner, and any income beyond the rent and other operating costs is profit for the machine owner/operator. Micro-properties in desirable location will have higher rents, just like traditional real estate. Learn more about passive income here.
Q: What is the difference between micro real estate and micro flipping?
A: Micro flipping is a strategy used in traditional commercial and residential real estate where a flipper buys a property and then quickly sells the property at a higher price. The micro aspect of micro flipping is the short amount of time required for flipping. Micro flipping has nothing to do with the small micro properties that are involved with micro real estate.
