Here are some details of a deal I just completed.
Located, through a real estate agent, a bank repo 3/2 1250 sq. ft ranch style home.
Purchase price 71,000.
Gave the loan officer, different bank, and a list of the improvements I was going to make.
Bank approved appraiser took improvements into consideration and appraised the property after repairs at 97,000.
Bank loaned 77,600.
71,000 to seller
1,000 for closing costs
5,600 cash at closing, left the table with a check for 5,600 to be used for repairs.
So as far as I’m concerned that’s a no money down, cash at closing deal.

Hi again!~
I have studied the CS course and have a good grasp on the subject of real estate. But for some reason the “cash at closing” seems to go right over my head. Could anyone please explain. The CS infomercial shows people getting $40,000 on one deal. ???
But in the CS course Mr. Sheets says you generally get only a couple hundred/thousand. H-E-L-P!!!
