There are many ways to finance real estate today.  Most think that because banks are not lending (not really true) the funds for real estate are found only with high-priced, low LTV hard money lenders.  Not true.  There are many programs available for business or personal, as well as those with good and not so […]

Flip to Hold.

That is our basic philosophy.  Buy, Rehab, flip, then use the profits to buy SF homes to cash flow.  This isn’t really anything revolutionary.  This has been going on for centuries, and will continue for centuries…as long as there are people that need to rent, and investors with money to buy, rehab, and rent.  Did you […]

Non-Performing Real Estate Notes can be a Goldmine if you know how to invest in them.

Thanks to HUD and the Banks thinking they are now Real Estate Investors, and selling their foreclosed properties at or close to 100 ARV, real estate investing has taken on a new look. Buying with cash for the cash flow is still great. Having little or no equity isn’t a problem for us since the […]

Lease Options

Lease Options have been around for a long time.  The basic reason for it is a buyer, although interested in buying a particular home, can’t qualify…just yet.  Sometimes the obstacle is a short term problem, and sometimes it is a long term problem.  A short term problem could be a credit issue that the buyer […]

Credit Repair

How important is your personal or business credit rating as an investor? A lot more important than you might think…especially if you’re just starting out.
