Investing in Real Estate without Having to Put Money Down

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.

Tips to Get a Good Deal on a Quick Sale

Posted in Property, Quick Sale, Real Estate on 14.02.09

quick saleIt might be ironic to term a quick sale a good deal. Reality wise, a lot of people are short selling their homes and a lot of wannabe homeowners take advantage of the situation.

One must remember though that a short sale is not really that short. Lenders of the sellers must agree with the sale and this can make the process like getting a regular home sale.

Here are some useful tips when going for a quick sale:

Know the situation you are getting into. Short sales can take a few months to go through. You will be dealing with several parties from the seller, to the lender, and the agents that may come in between. Think of your budget and where you will be staying while closing the deal.

Work with the right Pro. A quick sale is not as simple as it sounds. A good pro is always the best partner but make sure that you are working with an experienced broker who has done a ton of quick sales.

Choose the right property. The less liens on the property, the better. When scanning the home for sale listings, drop the properties which may require you to deal with several lenders. The headache will not be worth it.
