"This book is a must-read for all real estate investors, not only for understanding note investing but also to see the business from a lender's eyes."
—Matt Faircloth, Founder the DeRosa Group and author of Raising Private Capital

Whether through mortgages, student loans, or credit card debt, nearly all of us are in the note business. The trouble is, most people are on the other side of it: writing checks to note owners rather than cashing checks as note owners.

This isn’t another cookie-cutter "how to" book—instead, Dave Van Horn takes readers on a journey with him as he looks back over lessons learned across three decades of real estate investing, and the path that led him to his current success in the note industry. He teaches by example, illustrates with real-life stories, and gives a 30,000-foot view of the note space.

Whether you’re a wholesaler, rehabber, landlord, or turnkey investor, reading this book will help you focus on the “other side” of real estate. No matter your level of experience in the real estate business, the strategies in this book can help you build sustainable wealth today and for years to come.

  • Borrow smarter by making debt your friend
  • Raise money for your investments easier by understanding and appealing to private investors
  • Squeeze more profits out of the deals you’re already doing by utilizing creative offers and multiple financing strategies
  • Scale your investing through a passive investment vehicle that is backed by hard real estate without the tenants, termites, or toilets
  • Use note investing to pay for expenses like student loans and life insurance, or simply to provide additional cash flow for you into retirement
  • Become the bank and begin to use every form of leverage you have available
  • And much more!

The content was very enlightening and an enjoyable read

Great overview of using debt to supercharge your RE investing journey

Very easy to read and makes you think about debt in a totally different way. Dave has really done it all and landed on note investing as his core business, which speaks to the power of this strategy. Loved the overview and getting a feel of what the journey of a successful RE professional looks like. Can't wait to get started in this business, and I think given the market shifts, now is a great time!
