In 1991, I made my first attempt at financing an investment property through creative means. With a lot of guts and a little knowledge, I made an offer that was accepted by the seller. I tendered $1,000 as earnest money on the sales contract, then proceeded to try to make the deal work. I failed, lost my $1,000, but I learned an important lesson—a little knowledge can be dangerous. I decided then to become a master at real estate finance.
Financing has traditionally been, and will always be, an integral part of the purchase and sale of real estate. Few people have the funds to purchase properties for all cash, and those that do rarely sink all of their money in one place. Even institutional and corporate buyers of real estate use borrowed money to buy real estate.
This book explains how to utilize real estate financing in the most effective and profitable way possible. Mostly, this book focuses on acquisition techniques for investors, but these techniques are also applicable to potential homeowners.
