Key Takeaways:

“This is absolutely the step that catapulted me forward in my real estate investment. One of the first things I did was I went surrounded myself with real estate investors. I went on a limo tour where we tour private off-market deals. I went on to one of those with absolutely no resources, no means to buy anything. But I went there for networking, to meet some great people. I ended up meeting my mentor there.” – Adam Martin

“Vendor takeback mortgage really does act and behave just like the bank would. There’s just often a lot of pros that you won’t find at the bank. For example, he wasn’t worried about my creditworthiness. He wasn’t worried about, my income or my ability to prove my income. And he wasn’t worried about my utilization on credit in any of those factors that would certainly come into play if we were talking to an institutional financer.” – Adam Martin

“So a big advantage, if anybody’s ever looked at an amortization schedule, you probably realize that at the beginning of the loan, the vast majority of your pay or a good chunk of your payment is going towards interest. And a smaller portion is going towards the principal. So as a seller, he’s benefiting from that. So he’s actually probably making much better than 3% on the money if you look at that timeframe. Cause that’s the trick to the whole amortization thing.” – Adam Martin
