After talking with Gino tonight and probably frustrating him with my inability to fully comprehend this subject I thought I would put it up on the board for myself and anyone else who might have a similiar question. We used an example similiar to this. Please note the numbers are arbitrary so they are easy to follow.
Sell price 100K
Downpayment 10K (10%)
Seller Note is now 90K
Notebuyer offers 15% discount = $76500.00
Seller receives at close a total of $86500.00
How would the person who brought this deal to the table figure out what the spread is I think I am missing a number?
Any help would be appreciated. I am new to this. This seems to be a quick way of generating cash. So considering I am no longer employed, probably due to spending too much time in the chatroom trying to learn how to really make money, a good shot of cash would sure help.
