Getting Sellers to Finance Your Purchase, with Walter Wofford

Episode 277:

Since 1981 Walter Wofford has been an active real estate investor in the Jackson, MS area. He specializes in developing passive income by creating tax-free net worth and cash flow through seller financing in the affordable housing area. These methods combine note creation, IRA and Retirement Account investing with Trust Entities creating cash flow and building net worth. And creating profits for both today and in the future . . . tax-free.

Walter is also focused on improving his local community with Affordable Housing for 1st-time homebuyers in the Jackson Mississippi Area. He also teaches others how to help tenants become homeowners by creating short term discounted Seller Financed Notes with Trusts and IRAs for cash flow and wealth generation.
