Write a contract to purchase and then sell (assign) the contract for cash. If in good shape, assign it to retail buyer. If a junker, assign it to a rehab investor.
Buy very low 60% ITV or less and little fix up using hard money. They look at equity, not credit (most of them). Then rehab and retail.
Buy house “subject to” the existing mortgage, just have them give you the deed. Sell to retail buyer and use their loan to pay off sellers mortgage. If the seller insists on cash, either move on or arrange to give it to them at a later date (second mortgage). Buyers loan and cash cover all indebtedness and hopefully at least 10k in your pocket.
Buy on lease option. Again no cash from you, lease option to tenant/buyer for more than you pay.
Well that’s four out of a few hundred ways to buy with no loan (except the hard money) and no cash.
Partner up with someone who has cash and credit and no interest in learning real estate or getting dirty fixing stuff and use their cash/credit to do your deals and split the profit. Don’t know anyone? Do you know a doctor, dentist, car dealer, your boss, your father-in-law, stock broker, accountant, keep thinking. No? Then put an ad in the paper looking for money partner. When talking to lawyers, accountants, financial planners, etc., don’t forget to ask if they have CLIENTS who would like to have their money earning a decent return.
Two of these strategies do not even involve “buying” a house. Only “creating” a contract to buy (or lease), and selling the contract.
