Flipping America 288, Deal Funding with “Skin in the Game” Part 2

podcast 288 Skin in the Game, pt 2


Recently I finished up another eBook, “How to Put Skin in the Game When You are Running Thin on Skin.” In it I show you how to do a real estate deal using none of your own money. I’m not just talking about the occasional “no money down” deal you might come across. I’m talking about doing a full fix and flip with none of your own money. People want to know how I’ve done 700 or more of these, so I wrote the book, telling you how I did it and continue to do it. Last time I read part one and today we are finishing it up with part two.

Your Questions: Send emails to questions@rogerblankenship.com

  • Bob, Atlanta, GA “Could you weigh in on the topic of purchasing tax liens?”
  • Martin, Atlanta, GA “What is a subject-to purchase and how does it work?”
  • Shazar, Atlanta, GA “I’m struggling with a way to estimate repairs. It seems like by the time I figure them out the property already has four other offers.”
  • Cooper, Boulder, CO “A friend of mine turned me on to your show. We’ve been having a little debate about what to pay for rental properties. He says that according to you we should buy 1%ers and I say if you buy in the right location it doesn’t matter. The values will go up and we will be glad we bought. We are probably overpaying for properties near campus we plan to turn into student housing, but in the long term believe this is a sound strategy. How is this incorrect?”
  • Justin, Toledo, OH, “I have no family and no friends with money. What I do have is hustle and the ability to talk to people. I like real estate and like negotiating to buy properties. I have made two deals so far and a friend of mine gave me a few thousand dollars for each one and he kept them as rentals. He doesn’t want more properties right now so I was wondering if you could give me some ideas about what to do next?”
  • Allison, Fort Worth, TX “Do you ever get tired of talking about Real Estate?”
