Guest: Real Estate Investor, Sarah Eder

After training as an international professional athlete for 15 years Sarah Eder took the first steps in real estate by helping a highly successful property management investor manage over 150 doors. This investor was also a master at joint ventures so when Sarah was not in a position to get her own mortgages she still had the confidence and knowledge to be able to raise over 7-figures in real estate investments in a little over 3 years.

Now as the owner of Sarah Eder Investments, she is using a more complicated joint venture approach to not only focus on more traditional 50/50 flips, but also multi-family properties and larger-scale developments and commercial conversions that require more than one JV partner.

With the mind of a savvy, socially connected millennial she uses an innovative approach in looking at the real estate investing world differently than most and is able to find 50% of her JV deals through social media, where she is very active. Now a full-time investor, coach, and mentor, when not developing innovative ways to raise capital, she is mentoring others on how to successfully use joint ventures. She has been on multiple stages speaking about these topics and her success has been recently featured in Canadian Real Estate Wealth magazine.

You will learn about: – Tips on structuring deals – What is VTB (Vendor Take Back) Mortgage – Raising capital tips and strategies – How to find money partners and deals and what you need to know
