    Imagine Your Fix & Flip Deals Producing Rental Income While You Sell Imagine NEVER Reducing the Price of Your Flip-Even Months on the Market This is exactly how Russell Walker flips his houses now.

  • RE Networking Event-The 2017 State of the Investor Mortgage Market-Getting Money

    Need More Money? Every Real Estate Investor MUST GET MONEY to Fund Deals. Some have their own cash to buy, others have private money sources, but if you're like most of us, you buy properties using bank financing (IE Mortgages) in some area of your real estate business-especially for long term rentals. TIMES HAVE CHANGED Maybe you remember when MORTGAGE MONEY WAS EVERYWHERE-you didn't even need to show a tax return or even have a 600 credit score to get a mortgage. Ultimately that EASY MONEY caused the real estate bubble and subsequent popping of said bubble which led to the recession in the late 2000's. Then you probably remember the LACK OF MONEY during the recession from[masked]. You couldn't get money from banks ANYWHERE, unless you didn't need it. Since then, the best mortgage lenders have begun sourcing & providing some very effective mortgage products-especially for investors-that help you acquire properties and build out your portfolio. There are even a few programs out there to help you fix & flip properties!! At the February 22nd Event, Zack Karp will Present on: • 2017 State of the Mortgage Market • FOR BUY & HOLD INVESTORS: What You NEED to Qualify for Mortgage Financing (ie Down Payments, Credit Score, Income, etc) • FOR FIX & FLIP INVESTORS: What Your Retail Clients Need to Qualify for a Mortgage. • PLUS Exciting New Programs Recently Made Available for Real Estate Investors JOIN US WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2017 @6:00 PLEASE RSVP If You're Going to Attend so We Can Order Plenty of Food.
