"Is House Flipping With No Money and Bad Credit Possible?"
"Is house flipping even legal?"
These are just a few of the questions people have been asking me since 2003 when I completed my first "nothing down" deal.
Since then, my real life education in real estate investing has been an unconventional path through such areas as:
Short Sale deals
Seller financing and how to assume a mortgage
Working with private mortgage lenders
Lease option investing
Rental Property investing
Don't worry if you don't know the meaning of the terms above. You will soon enough.
On the other hand, if you're already familiar with creative real estate financing and wholesaling (no-fix, low-risk house flipping), you will find this website to be a useful reference resource.

My Hope For You
My vision for this website is to give you access to thousands of dollars in free value to help you to your first "no money down" real estate deal. This was my path to my first deal in 2003.
It was by no means easy for me, and undoubtedly, it will not be easy for you...
but it can be simpler.
Without your passion, tenacity and yes, even desperation, you will not succeed. A "get rich quick" mindset will not work here.
Yes, you may indeed luck into one profitable deal...
but without the mental preparation and attitude that goes with a long term orientation, your single windfall will not translate into any sustainable wealth or momentum.
With that said, why wait any longer??
Take the plunge.
