Posted in Investing, Money, Property, Real Estate on 30.03.09

Investing in Real EstateThe current mortgage market is crazy and the market can be tough for investors. An investor might not have money for the down because of certain financial issues or encounters hurdles for financing approval. Despite this, investors can still get a property without draining their bank account.

Lease Option

Investors can negotiate to lease the property with an option to buy. It will appear like you are renting the property and this monthlies can be put towards a down payment. This option can allow investors to secure the property while they are short of funds or no funds at all for a down.

Owner Financing

When some buyers cannot get approve for a loan to buy a property, one way in is to go for owner financing. The owner of the property will take care of all the bank work instead of the buyer who may have poor credit score, bankruptcy, or late payments.

Assume Balance

This is an excellent way to get a property. The investor just takes over the payments and the owners do not as for any money down.

Private Lender

Instead of getting money through the bank, some investors go to private lenders. These private lenders will take care of the whole purchase price and the buyer will repay it just like a regular loan. The private lender though is not involved in the mortgage transaction process and is just there to provide financing. This really is a good way of investing in real estate if you have cash laying around.

When you don’t have enough money for a down, these are some of the options that you may want to explore. The thumb rule in any game is to know what you are getting into before doing anything.
