Two of the top things that investors seek information about on BiggerPockets are finding deals and funding deals. For this reason, we are very excited to announce BiggerPockets’ newest book Finding and Funding Great Deals: The Hands-on Guide to Acquiring Real Estate in Any Market by Anson Young. Anson is a full-time real estate investor here in Denver with 11 years of flipping, wholesaling, and agent experience. His book covers the details of finding and funding deals from front to back, giving new and experienced investors the tools they need to excel in their individual markets.

Learn How to Find Great Deals in Your Market

The book starts by covering an important first step: how to choose your target market and which tools and resources you need to figure out where to start. After you know the where, you can focus on who to target. Finding and Funding Great Deals will help you by breaking down all the different types of sellers and why they would want to sell. From there, this book goes into detail on how to market, network, or otherwise get in front of these sellers. Including direct marketing, internet marketing, door-knocking, and more, you’ll learn the most effective ways to hunt down sellers today.

Analyze & Negotiate Like a Pro

Even if you’re finding potential properties for investment, you can’t know what these deal are worth without thorough analysis. That’s why chapter five is all about ways to analyze repairs, the after-market value, and the deal itself so you know how to proceed with the seller.
All of that hard work will be for nothing if you fail at successfully negotiating with the seller. Anson covers exactly how to negotiate with each type of seller you come across in your real estate career. Then, once you have an agreed upon price, you need to know how to lock up the deal and get it to the closing table in order to get paid. And once you complete that whole process, if you truly want to build a sustainable real estate business, you’ll need to learn how to find deals consistently—which is all covered in the latter part of this book.

Get Tips From Someone Who’s Done It

Anson uses his experience in finding and funding deals in the real world to get this information in front of you and includes a case study of real deals at the end of every chapter. Whether you have several deals under your belt or you’re looking to start on your investing journey, Finding and Funding Great Deals will give you actionable tips to take your next step.

Learning to find great deals is one of the hardest aspects of becoming a successful real estate investor. In Finding and Funding Great Deals, seasoned real estate agent and investor Anson Young guides you through his tried and true methods for finding deals in any market. Inside, he outlines his own methods as well as other techniques to help new and seasoned investors alike improve their real estate business. 

This is not a magic pill that will turn you in to a successful investor overnight; instead this is a practical guide to several approaches to use in each step of your real estate deal finding journey. Hard work required (but not included with the purchase of this book). Finding and Funding Great Deals is now available here!

    I’ll just repost my Amazon review here: The Book on Finding and Funding Great Deals is a fantastic resource on the acquisition side of real estate investment. Instead of trying to touch on every topic in real estate investment (and inevitably failing), Anson Young focuses on how to buy right. He walks you through all of the ins and outs of marketing to, negotiating with, financing and of course, closing profitable real estate deals. This book is a great resource for wholesalers, flippers and those looking to hold alike. Great job Anson!
