Since you are following the Millionaire Real Estate Investors' guidance, you will need to get a 20 percent discount on the property ($25,000) and therefore will offer $100,000 to buy it. You have $28,000 to invest, and so you will be able to put 20 percent down ($20,000) and finance 80 percent ($80,000).
