BY JOSH CANTWELL—Ten years ago, I was just a guy with a vision for a fixer-upper I wanted to buy and flip. I hated my job. I worked a lot of nights and weekends as a financial planner. I had a six-figure income, but I was basically broke living commission check to commission check.
I scraped together enough money for a down payment, got a bank loan and jumped feet first into my first real estate rehab. Luckily, the property qualified for bank financing.
Today, it would never pass inspection and no lender would give me the money because the property needed a lot of updates. I fixed the property up, put it on the market and… it sat there.
Four months later, I rented it out and have had the same tenants in the property for over 10 years. I did make money on it, but it didn’t quite work out as I had planned. The house rented, I refinanced it…again using my own credit, I pulled out $25,000 in equity through the refinance – I made money, the bank made money. Even though I screwed the deal up big time and bought in the wrong neighborhood, it still seemed so easy back then because bank funding was available and easy to get.
Now, fast forward to 2015, the two main questions I get asked every day from colleagues and students is, “How do I find good deals in my market before my competition?” and “How do I get funding for my deals?”
Do you ever wish there was a manual that you could go through that would show you all the ways that real estate investment professionals use daily? Perhaps a book that included links to the sites we use, details on each and even some real life case studies?
