With lease options and subject-to deals, investors can control properties worth much more than what they could normally afford to purchase. The potential for profit is great and the costs of getting started are low.
This book shows novice investors how author Wendy Patton and thousands of other Americans—including well-known real estate developers and business moguls—use lease options and subject-to deals to control valuable property without necessarily owning it. The cost of purchasing an option or subject-to deal is a fraction of what it costs to buy a home. That's why these kinds of deals are typically found in every serious investor's portfolio. Sharing the secrets and strategies investors use to profit from low- and no-money-down deals, Patton gives investors all the information they need to succeed.
"Finally, a book that explains lease option and subject-to deals in depth and detail. This book is essential for anyone who wants to make money in real estate without using a lot of cash or taking on a lot of risk. A gold mine of great information."
—Robert Shemin, New York Times bestselling author of Secrets of Buying and Selling Real Estate Without Using Your Own Money!
"Few can rival Wendy's knowledge and experience with lease option and subject-to deals. This is a must-read for beginning and advanced investors and the real estate agents who serve them."
—Gary Keller, New York Times bestselling author of The Millionaire Real Estate Investor
"The techniques Patton teaches here are invaluable—especially for working with Realtors and still getting properties for little- or no-money-down. The detail in this book will make you want to read every page."
—Albert Lowry, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of How You Can Become Financially Independent by Investing in Real Estate
How can Trump's billionaire strategies help the average investor? Ross explains that the same basic rules of thumb that make Trump's Manhattan skyscrapers so profitable still apply to every investor, no matter the size of their property. Even if you can't afford the kind of luxury extras Trump offers his elite customers, you can still add Trump-style glamour to any property-and charge tenants or buyers a hefty premium for it.
Success in real estate requires not just smart strategies but also an ability to project the personal qualities that inspire confidence in others-like Trump's endless enthusiasm, showmanship, and never-say-die tenacity. With dramatic examples-such as Trump's Commodore/Hyatt Hotel deal on 42nd Street in Manhattan, which netted Trump over $85 million-Ross shows you how these personal qualities can help you negotiate better deals and dramatically increase profits.
You'll learn how to create an aura of exclusivity; Trump's secret sources of negotiation power; the value of the "invested time" principle; and even how to use deadlocks and deadlines to your advantage. And once you've zeroed in on your property, Ross gives seasoned advice on retaining the best help and conducting a dynamic marketing campaign.
For experienced and novice investors alike, Trump Strategies for Real Estate presents an indepth, insightful look at what it takes to achieve Trump-sized success in real estate.
