When I first got interested in using real estate options in 1985, there were no publications available like this book. The scant amount of information that I was about to scrounge up about real estate options told me just enough to be dangerous, but not enough so that I really knew what I was doing. This lack of solid information meant that I did not have the luxury of learning from someone else's mistakes. I had no choice but to go it alone. So, how did I become my own real estate option expert? I did it the old-fashioned way. I went out on my own and learned the hard way how real estate options really work. I did a lot of research, talked to a lot of knowledgeable people, and asked a lot of questions. Then, I went out and bought some real estate options and made the inevitable mistakes, which I learned from. And while all of this was going on, I took copious notes to keep track of my trials, tribulations, numerous mistakes, and firsthand experiences as a real estate option investor. Those notes are the basis for this book.
