The Dade Real Estate Investors Association (www.dreia.org) has invited national speaker and author Wendy Patton to be the featured presenter at their monthly investor education meeting in Miami on Wednesday, July 16th.
Miami, FL (1888PressRelease) June 30, 2008 - Wendy Patton joins an impressive list of recent speakers to educate DREIA members and guests on recession proof investment techniques. Wendy is widely recognized as one of the most inspiring speakers on "Little or No Money Down" real estate investing. Wendy will give unique insights into surviving the current real estate market while teaching DREIA members and guests how they can use lease options to help desperate sellers get relief from their house payments.
Lease Options are making a comeback. When the market was raging, no one needed it. Now that the technique is emerging as a valuable tool, investors must learn when and how to use it. “This is definitely something that long term real estate investors should look at as a way to stay afloat in today's market,” says Viju Koottungal, board member of Dade Real Estate Investors.
The Lease Option technique is one that involves gaining ‘control’ of a property, without the total burdens of ownership. Owning property is the most obvious way to control it, but control is possible without ownership – and control is how the wealthiest of investors make their money. Most successful real estate developers today utilize options, in one form or another.

Her first book is titled Investing in Real Estate with Lease Options and Subject To Deals – Powerful Strategies for Getting More When You Sell and Paying Less When You Buy has received very positive reviews on Amazon.com and other real estate investor websites. Her second book came out in August 2007 and was immediately a #1 Best Seller on Amazon.com. How to Make Hard Cash in a Soft Real Estate Market , co-written with her business partner, Justin Ryan has since been consistently in the top 10 on Amazon.com for Real Estate books.
