Private Money Financing Ed Benz
Ed Benz started his investing career in 1999 when he bought his first flip property for $3000 and made a handsome profit that was quickly spent.
Realizing that flipping houses was just another job where he traded his time for money, Ed switched his attention to buy and hold rentals, acquiring his first rental property in 2001. Growing slowly through the first decade of the new century, Ed was able to acquire enough rentals to replace his income from his day job and his boss finally forced him into full time investing in late 2013.
In 2014, Ed started an aggressive investment plan, buying one single family unit a month using private lenders as his primary source of funding. He structured all of his financing on five year notes and starting in January of 2019, will finally see the fruits of his labor as the first of these units begin to pay off.
In addition to managing all of this rental properties, Ed occasionally wholesales properties to supplement his income and has recently taken on the role of Executive Director for ACRE of Pittsburgh
