How to Finance Real Estate Investments

rehab valuatorI started Invest Four More to share my knowledge on financing investment property. Many banks tell investors they can’t finance more than four or more than ten properties. It is simply not true that there is a limit to how many properties you can finance. There may be banks that have their own limits, but there is no law that says an investor can only have 10 mortgages.

How to Get Financing on Multiple Investment Properties eBook


I have written a detailed book on how to finance multiple rental properties. The book includes information on finding portfolio lenders, hard money, private money, conventional loans, and buying with little money down. Much of this information is in the blog, but the book is in an easy to read format and is over 100 pages long. The book is available at Amazon as an eBook or in the Invest Four More store as a PDF for only $6.99.
