The Alchemy of Contracts

W. Casey McDonald

W. Casey McDonald

Mr. Casey McDonald is a seasoned real estate investor and entertainer with broad experience and knowledge in real estate investing.

Casey is the son of 87-year-old real estate investing expert Pat McDonald (Pat has purchased over 180 properties in Upstate New York).

In this coming FFREIA general meeting, Casey will share his five secrets to making money with contracts.

Casey will be sharing his knowledge and experience on his leases, rental agreements, and purchase contracts that will help us learn more about real estate investing. Casey has been involved in over 100 deals from single family, raw land, multi and mixed-use properties, and  is currently negotiating the purchase of a hospital.

Want to know how he bought 17 properties for two cups of coffee and a piece of pie, and how people have paid him to buy their houses?

Casey is the former president of REICNY, the Syracuse, NY Real Estate Investor’s Group, and will show us  how he instantly makes money from a simple, one page contract, written on the spot.

Casey will show us how he:

               * Generates a loan by purchasing real estate.

           * Buys any property sight unseen.

        * Writes a contract on the spot.


It all begins with the contract. 

Protect yourself and learn how to make gold from a pile of straw.

Those who are interested in real estate investing will better understand contracts and how they can protect themselves and at the same time learn how to make money.
