Creative Financing 101

Unable to secure finance for their initial deal is one of the biggest challenges most new real estate investors face. Financing is still a huge task, and even a seasoned investor could run into the big kahuna. Additionally, there are currently rising interest rates and a great deal of market uncertainty.

Our speakers will discuss Financing and the health of the market at this month's Madison meetup. Are you interested in seller finance, hard money, or how lenders see investors? Are you concerned about rising interest rates and what it might imply for you and other investors? They have experienced numerous cycles and may offer a unique insight as both a lender and an investment. You won't want to miss this event, so mark it in your calendar.

We’ll be sure to set aside time for Q&A so be sure to bring your curiosity and your most burning questions!
