Most agents are clueless when it comes to creative financing. They know two things list and sell with bank financing. Get with an agent in your local real estate club and find a good attorney there as well. Wholesaling is not illegeal. Make sure you ask the right people the right questions. I had a “real estate” attorney tell me he had no Idea what a double close was and he was highly recomended by the title company. He just knew one thing, close bank loans.
Educate yourself so you know when you are talking to the wrong person by the answers you are given. Its hard to interview someone if you don’t know what to ask. I have spent over $2000 just this year on courses. Most were over priced but I have armed myself with enough knowledge to surround myself with a team that knows what creative real estate is all about.
