Video Series: Creative Real Estate Solutions in Today’s Market

January 5, 2009 | By | 13 Replies More

Creative Real Estate InvestingAs 2008 came to a close, I begin to think about why most people aren’t where they want to be as real estate investors. I had to ask myself, “What is it that’s holding them back?”

I know what excuses I commonly hear . . .

“I don’t have any cash or credit.”

“I need to go to another seminar first. I’m not ready yet. I need to be better educated.”

“Things are different in my local market. That would never work here.”

“Once I have some financing resources, then I’ll get started.”

“I have plenty of deals but no way to finance them.”

After thinking about it long and hard, I figured out exactly what the REAL problem is. And I decided to produce an entire video series to help investors get past their “supposed” limitations. The video series is called “Creative Real Estate Solutions in Today’s Market.” It’s a five part in depth series filled with actionable content . . . the kind of content that real estate investing gurus charge hundreds if not thousands of dollars for.

  3. Those two deals that you got in one day are incredible. I’ve heard and read about buying property subject to but haven’t known exactly how to negotiate that kind of deal. Are you going to cover that in depth?

    Great video.

    Here’s an email I got earlier with a couple questions:

    Hey Patrick,

    Just a note to let you know I thoroughly enjoyed your first video. There was content in it that was informative and not in the typical real estate knowledge forum. For instance, a questionnaire for sellers to help you determine their needs and the sign on the utility pole. I’d like to learn the techniques that the masses don’t follow. It seems that most investors are narrow visioned and don’t think out of the box to make deals. That’s what was refreshing about the video. You mentioned that some leads were created from foreclosure letters. What are they and how are they followed up on?

    Keep up the good work. I’m looking forward to the next video.

    Hey guys!

    Thanks for the questions and comments so far on the video series.


    You definitely don’t need to pay an appraiser to value property. The only time you’ll need an appraiser is if your lender requires it.

    Check out to get a quick idea of a property’s value. Get familiar with your county website as well. The county websites in my area have a wealth of info that can be useful when evaluating a deal. Figure out how to search for real property through your county site. That’s a good start.

    You want to get a Realtor on your team too. You can let them know that you will list property with them down the road if they help you evaluate property leads that you get.


    I cover buying property subject to in depth in video 3. Let me know if you have any questions after you check out the video.


    We have a three step mailer campaign that we use to market to foreclosure prospects. I’ll shoot you an email with more details.

    As far as following up with sellers, check this post out that I wrote on the subject

    Thanks again everyone! Keep the questions coming!

    I loved the last video series you did on private money. I really appreciate all the work you put into making this one of the best places to get educated on real estate investing.

  7. Great job on the series so far. Exit strategies are so important in today’s market. I like how you chose to cover that early on. A lot of people don’t realize how important it is to define your niche as well. Most investors are all over the board.

    Really looking forward to video 3! Which creative deal structuring strategy would you say has made the biggest impact on your biz?

  8. Patrick Riddle says:

    Thanks Scott!


    I think buying property subject has made the biggest impact in our business over the years. It’s allowed us to leverage our way into far more deals.

    Creating seller financing has contributed the most to building wealth. Seller’s are the easiest and most flexible source to “borrow” money from.
