Do No-Money-Down Deals Really Exist?

Many assume that in order to acquire profitable concerns, that a strategy known as “No Money Down” can be used. But as Nick explains in this episode, there’s a difference between “No Money Down” and “Other People’s Money”


  • No-Money-Down is a term that originated mainly in the property space, denoting a scenario in which investors were able to begin their journey without the need for money of their own.
  • Other People’s Money is different from No-Money Down, as it explicitly means that other people’s investment capital is being leveraged.
  • When people invest their lives into a business, then they have done so with the intention of gaining some kind of reward in the long run.
  • If you are fixating on a No Money Down deal, then you must be prepared for potential letdowns. Remember that it’s better to spend a little and get something that works, than take s chance on something that might be fundamentally broken.

‘I prefer to use the term “Other People’s Money”‘
