One of the biggest misconceptions about real estate for first-time investors is that you have to come up with the money yourself, and you have to operate within the bank's terms.

If interest rates go up, too bad. If the economy crashes, that’s on you. If a deal goes awry, you’re the one who’s liable.

Today’s guest, Chris Prefontaine, knows that’s not really the truth—that’s just what we’ve been repeatedly told.

Chris Prefontaine is a 3-time best-selling author of Real Estate on Your Terms, The New Rules of Real Estate Investing, and Moneeka Sawyer’s Real Estate Investing for Women. He’s also the Founder and CEO of SmartRealEstateCoach.com and host of the Smart Real Estate Coach Podcast.

Having been in the real estate game for nearly 30 years, Chris has lived through his fair share of ups and downs. After the economy crashed in 2008, Chris’s real estate business crashed with it, forcing him to start over from nothing. This time, he vowed never to invest in a deal he was personally on the hook for.

Fast forward to today, Chris only buys real estate “on terms” without using any of his own cash or credit—and in today’s episode, you’re going to hear exactly how he does it.

You’ll learn what it means to buy real estate “on terms”, his approach to structuring deals, and the step-by-step system he uses to create 3 paydays for every deal he does.
