Creative Financing: Understanding Small Dollar Deals & Self-Directed IRAs

9:00 AM | Welcomes & Introductions

9:10 AM | Mindset:

There are a lot of reasons to stay out of the real estate market right now. There’s no inventory, prices are too high, there is too much competition, the timing’s not good, and so on and so on.  The truth is you can always find a reason to sit on the sidelines. The most important skill you can develop is the mindset. Get inspired to develop a “can do” mindset by hearing from unlikely people who have found success investing in real estate.

9:55 AM |  Small Dollar Deals:
