EP 121: Buying Off Market Deals with Creative Financing with Mercedes Torres

Having little money and poor credit doesn’t mean you can’t invest in real estate; it just means you’ll have to be creative. We are excited to sit down with Mercedes Torres, investor and businesswomen, to discuss how she escaped the rat race and completed over 2000+ real estate transactions. We cover so much with Mercedes like how to analyze trends and market conditions, how to create win-wins for both the buyer and the seller, and the biggest lesson she learned from one of her largest failures. Mercedes also shares with us her tried and true letter of intent for off market deals. In her very first two years in the world of Real Estate, Mercedes Torres flipped 24 properties. Now, she has 2000+ real estate transactions to her name. She’s appeared on the A&E show Flip That House, graduated from UCLA — and is currently divulging all her life’s lessons and real estate savvy to her friends, followers, clients, and connections. If you see her on the town, she’ll be sipping a spicy margarita while dreaming up that next big deal. “Family first, then financial freedom” I’ve heard her say. And she does more than speak those words, she lives by them. In the real estate world, Mercedes is known as a fierce and relentless Latin leader that lives a fully focused and mindful life. She knows how to ‘step away’ from work when she’s with the fam. And at work, she uncovers solutions that deliver wins for everybody — wins that create lasting relationships built around more than just table talk. She loves nothing more than taking someone from “this isn’t possible” to “finally, I’ve escaped the rat race”. Catch her live every Tuesday on the Epic Real Estate Investing Podcast.
