How to do this deal? - Posted by Bill

Couple options Bill:

  1. Pre-freclosure. Tie up the property via contracts, list in paper as 110k property to pre-qualified buyers. Get the mortgage co to waive foreclosure (have homeowner make payment -you’re saving his credit). Find buyers via RE offices.

  2. Find yourself a cash buyer/investor - split the value of the house after you sell or assign to him/her your position.

There’s other ways, but basically you’re needing to get themortgage comp to slow down (if possible). Money/purchase is the only thing that they usually listen to though.

What city is it in and how’s the market? Sounds like a good deal as there’s tons of equity. I’d hate to pass on that one…I’ve got a money guy who loves to buy these from me for a little bit of cash so he can have them.

Good luck!

I know this is definitely a deal but I was hoping to get some opinions on the best way to structure it.

Minor cosmetics=10K tops
Foreclosure coming 8/28/2007

Buy it outright? Get the deed and wholesale it? Sub 2?
I am new and am just looking for advice. Thanks!

When I get a good deal like that in front of me, I get it under contract and close within a couple of days. I hate to take the chance that something (or someone) changes the seller’s mind. I’m assuming the seller agreed to sell to you for 70k? I would offer them 80 or 90k to give them some walking money. No need to be too greedy.

Kinda depends on what the seller is hoping to do.

What’s his story?
