Over 25 seller financed deals in a few short years! Today’s guest, former service member (and diamond pushup world record holder) Gabriel Hamel, sits down with Brandon and David to share how he built a portfolio of over 140 units (in an expensive market) using creative methods and seller financing to make deals where other investors miss them!
Gabriel shares how he started investing in a tough market and used sub-prime lending (successfully) to house hack his first few properties. He gives some awesome advice on approaching sellers with seller financing proposals, structuring the offers, and showing them how it’s a win-win. He also gives great advice on finding gentrifying markets, walking away from closings with money in his pocket, and applying a mindset to real estate investing that helps him succeed in all aspects of life! Gabriel has very practical, down-to-earth, useful advice and shares it willingly.
