Financial Freedom with Real Estate Investing

When your WHY is big enough, you find a way. It doesn’t matter that you’re brand new to real estate investing. It doesn’t matter that you don’t have a college degree. And it doesn’t matter that you don’t have any money.

Sadhana Sabharwal is the real estate investor and coach behind Single Mom Millionaire and The No Money Down Academy training course. Sadhana was a recently-divorced, single mother of three boys when she got into real estate, and in four years, she built a portfolio of 46 doors. Sadhana’s focus is on buying, renovating and holding properties for positive cashflow, and she specializes in creative financing strategies that leverage other people’s money to buy real estate.

On this episode of Apartment Building Investing, Sadhana joins cohost Garrett Lynch and me to explain how a painful divorce inspired her real estate investing journey. She shares her approach to creative financing, describing how she funds deals with seller financing and why networking was so valuable in helping her learn the business. Listen in for insight on finding your WHY and learn how Sadhana’s positive mindset influences her success!
