Entrepreneurship & Real Estate: The No-Money Down Deal

Entrepreneurial investing will speed your investment growth

Entrepreneurial investing will speed your real estate investment portfolio growth. There’s only one thing better than making money in real estate. And that is making money fast– To build wealth on the “Fast Track”.

This wealth building strategy is not for every investor. To be successful at fast-track investing, it takes just a bit of Entrepreneurship.

Today–for those in a hurry–popular strategies for making money fast include “flipping” real estate, or buying under-valued properties. With little or no improvements made, they plan to resell as soon as possible. In most cases, we call that real estate dealing. So does the IRS. Dealing can be fun and highly profitable.

But the inescapable fact, the bottom line, is it takes cash on hand and lots of available credit. What's needed is to find lenders who don’t mind short-term loans on real estate. Taking this path we soon learn there are few conventional lenders interested in this kind of deal.

The second challenge is to in fact fund the deal with one’s own capital, (cash, real money). Given lots of cash resources this may not be a problem. It’s full steam ahead! But cash is not necessarily prerequisite, or required, to get the deal done.
