(I’ve posted this on the main board as well)

I’ve done a couple closings with a mortgage broker here in town. She says she has been in the business for 15+ years and knows all the “creative” ways to buy and sell. Yet, when I brought up the idea of lease option and refi, she said no one can do this because in order to refi, I need to be on the title. However, in Bronchick’s material he says “Some lenders treate a lease/option as a sale and will treate the tenant/buyer’s loan as a refinance, not a purchase”. The goal for me would be having the lender lend based on the appraised value of the property and not the purchase price.

Can I educate her (and if so, how?), or should I find someone else to work with?

Also, which lenders do this?

What has your experience been?
