A couple of years ago I tried my hand at flipping real estate. However, after months of being unable to sell my flips in 2007 (in hind sight just before the big real estate crash), I started using lease-options to keep the property occupied.
Now after over 2 years my rent to own strategy has been remarkably successful. I detail all of the methods I use to this strategy here at rent to own homes secrets.
I haven't had a stretch of more then a week when any of my properties is unrented.
