Real-World Creative Deal Structuring & Financing

Sunday Morning Session: Back by popular demand, Bill Cook of “What Box?” Investing returns to present Real-World Creative Deal Structuring & Financing. This is NOT a sit-on-your-fanny-and-watch-the-show meeting. We encourage you to be a part of the meeting and help find the best ways a deal can be structured! Here’s how it works:

[1] Bill will give you information about the seller and the seller’s property.

[2] Then, YOU and your fellow attendees structure the deal.

[3] After you reach a consensus on how the group would structure the deal, Bill will reveal his structure and explain why he structured the deal the way he did.

[4] And it gets better: Bill will discuss how his deals were financed (and woe unto anyone who dares mention new bank “institutional” financing).

How I Would Make $1,000,000 in 5 Years or Less… Starting From Scratch

BONUS Sunday Morning Session: In this diverse and timely panel, 4 very successful real estate investors will share…

[1] How they are making money in the market

[2] How they got started investing in real estate

[3] AND, if they had to start all over, in today’s market, knowing and having experienced what they have, how would they get back up to $1,000,000 in under 5 years
