Episode 74:

Wendy Patton is a very successful creative real estate investor who started when she was young and broke. Creative seller financing is a way to invest in real estate without using traditional bank financing. Wendy Patton’s focus is on lease options, subject tos, and land contracts (contract for deed).

At the age of 21, Wendy started investing in real estate. Like most young adults she was single, broke, thinking “Corporate America” was her only future. She graduated from college, was hired for that corporate America “dream job”, but was $20,000 in debt. She found real estate investing and realized that Corporate America wasn’t the golden path to what she wanted.

When she began investing in real estate, she didn’t fully understand her financing options, so she started purchasing real estate investment properties on her credit cards.
