no money down

What would you do if you didn’t need money to invest in real estate anymore?

That’s the question we tackle today on the BiggerPockets Podcast as we interview one of our own… Brandon Turner to learn how he’s purchased over $2,000,000 of real estate with almost no money of his own! Brandon, although co-host on the BiggerPockets Podcast, is also an avid real estate investor who rarely-if-ever puts his own money into his deals. In this groundbreaking episode, Josh interviews Brandon about how he built his business using creativity rather than cash and the lessons that he learned along the way.

This episode will leave you inspired, refreshed, and with a laundry list of new ideas to use in your investing business to invest with less (or none) of your own cash!
