I CHALLENGE YOU TO DO THE SAME!

Lets judge each other’s ideas.

Here’s my idea - Posted by Ben

Posted by Ben on February 28, 1999 at 22:43:03:

I just pulled off this deal and it worked great. I purchased an older tax sale certificate on the secondary market at a deep discount. I started foreclosure immediately and took title to the property without a hitch. I passed up cash offers from bargain hunters to work with a more motivated but non-conforming buyer who loves the place but could only put up a small downpayment (15%) and who needed seller-carryback financing. Because I gave him an opportunity no one else would, I charged him top dollar for the property and a high interest rate. After the deal was structured orally but not committed to, I posted the note on notenetwork.com. Within 24 hours I had fifteen offers. Now, knowing the note is immediately saleable, I put it in writing, closed the deal and sold the note at closing for the highest offer, which was only $1,000 less than face value. I made top dollar for a property which I only purchased a tax lien on, and at a deep discount to boot!

Here’s my first one.


WIN WIN WINNING WITH TENANTS

When a tenant lets me know they will be moving out before
the end of their lease term, I kindly let them know
that they are responsible for the rent payments until
the end of the lease ( I use a 1 year lease).

They Freak Out!

I propose however, that they find a suitable tenant
(who meets my approval) to take their place in the lease.
THEY frantically (without my knowledge or bother)
contact all of their friends, co-workers, business
associates, aquaintances, fairweather friends and more
than likely, their enemies to get them out of their
"bind".
( Little do they know, the courts are on their side, most of the time). Usually, they have no problem finding another tenant who does meet my approval.

The result is I get a new tenant (with a new 1 year lease) without any effort-no advertisement expense, almost no time spent dealing with prospective tenants who would call on an advertisement. Since the present tenant wants to get out of the lease they send only “choice” prospective tenants to me for my consideration.

WIN,WIN,WIN…
The present tenant gets to move without a penalty, the future tenant gets a well kept clean home in a desirable area for a reasonable monthly rent and I have No Vacancy, no advertising cost, no cleaning to do and best of all, all three parties are happy.

Sure beats going to Court to try to collect rent that is not due yet!

Ben,
As a fellow “creative idea contestant”, I want to compliment you on your technique. I respect you as, and consider you, to be a worthy, formidable opponent. What a great web site, an incredible concept, and a unique forum to foster creative thought in the spirit of competition. Thanks, Perry, Ill…
