Creative Real Estate Financing

Using creative real estate financing to fund your deals will change your business.  Specifically, it will change how many deals you can do when you no longer need to depend on banks to fund your deals. Doing more deals in a shorter period of time allows you to scale your business faster. If your investing strategy happens to include building a portfolio of rentals, that means you’ll have more passive income sooner.  Using creative financing also allows someone to buy property that doesn’t have perfect credit or the typical 20% down payment required by traditional lenders. It opens up a whole world of possibility for real estate investors.


When is the Best Time to Use Creative Real Estate Financing?

You probably know that great deals are plentiful in a down market. Sellers can jump on board quickly when it comes to creative real estate financing during those periods of time. However, what about when it’s a seller’s market?  Is this still a viable strategy?  You bet it is, and my guest today is going to show you his favorite creative real estate financing strategies when he’s buying property as well as when he’s selling property.  (Yes, they’re different).


Why is There a Hierarchy?

Now you’re probably wondering, why is the hierarchy of these creative financing strategies different when you’re buying than when your selling?  The reason is because it benefits you, and you will learn why in this show.

My guest today is Tennessee investor, Bill Walston. Bill is a sought after business and tax strategist in the real estate investing community. He has an undergraduate degree in Accounting and Finance and a graduate degree in Tax Law.  His passion is teaching and creating strategies that help real estate investors do more deals, make more money, and live a tax-deductible lifestyle.

Listen in and learn why Bill uses this hierarchy of creative real estate financing and exactly how it benefits you as a real estate investor. You’ll also find out how you can get a printable copy of his creative financing hierarchy and learn a little about each one of these strategies in the process.
