Overview

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

    Property buying tour, propertybuyingtours

    I just came back from Wendy Patton and Jim Peters property buying tour. I was disapointed. The concept is good. But the execution was poor. Good investments deals were raffled off, but the fairness and validity of the raffle were questionable. Jim Peters paid all his attention to an attractive lady and disregarded the rest of the people. We spent 3k to go on the tour, so its unfair to the rest of us. What consenting adults do is their business, but do that on your own time, not mine.

    Wendy Patton is the Real Deal

    If you are new to real estate investing and looking for a way to do real estate deals with little or no money, this is a must read. Wendy Patton not only gives you the nuts and bolts, she gives you a plan to reach your goals. I recommend all my mentoring students purchase this book and make it a uselful part of their real estate investment library.

    The detailed steps you are looking for...

    Wendy Patton's new book is absolutely the best book on lease options out there. If you need a step by step checklist for lease options, it's in there. Do you need a script to read before calling potential sellers? It's in there. Buy this book, follow her advice and take action.
