May 28, 2020

Transactional real estate engineers should be creative and quick, but most of all, they should be wise not to evade any steps in the process when making a deal. There is a script, and that script must be followed steadily and minutely.

In this episode, learn the sequence of steps you must take to make a real estate deal work. Discover how to approach sellers with non-conforming properties who only want to cash out, and those who are in foreclosure with a USDA loan. Hear about a deal with lots of exit strategies, about buying and selling with seller financing, and how to deal with sellers walking away from a contract a couple of days before closing.

Get tips on how to do ads to hire qualified acquisitionists and how to find proper lawyers for this business. Master real estate terminology that trips newbies up.

Finally, keep updated with what is going on in the market with the shifting economy and its effects on the real estate world.
