How do you start investing in real estate if you don’t have any money?

Matt Aitchison is a real estate investor, syndicator, speaker, and host of the Millionaire Mindcast podcast. He’s flipped hundreds of houses, built a Top 1000 real estate team in the U.S, and now focuses solely on raising capital for syndications and scaling his passive income portfolio, which consists of commercial strip centers, hospitality assets, and single family rentals.

Matt graduated from college with what he calls “a really expensive piece of paper” that he knew he wasn’t going to use.

Thankfully, he ended up finding a mentor-seeks-mentee ad on Craigslist, and spent the next year flipping more than 100 houses for the guy who’d posted it. Matt didn’t earn a dime, but he got an education that’s paid back in spades!

At 21 years old, Matt branched out on his own. He bought his first home for $75,000, fixed it up, and sold it three months later for $210,000.

In this episode, you’ll hear about how Matt structured his first real estate deal using 100% of other people’s money. We also talk about syndications, the power of relationships, private lending, underwriting a deal, and much more!
