Hi all. I think it would be a great resource for us beginners to see some creative financing techniques in action using real examples with real numbers. It would really help get us into that creative thought process of financing real estate. There are a few in the How TO articles but you can never read enough of them. Feel free to post a few examples of your creative deals. Thanks! And see you all at the conference.

I agree with you. So why don’t you take a break from posting and spend a little time in the street looking for a deal. You can bring it back to this board and I personally will help you structure and do your deal.

How about it, your time has come Skywalker; it’s time for you to get off the pot.

Ed I would sure love that kind of help from you. I have located several deals, but have been afraid to pull the trigger.
