I too have read Wade Cooks book. I found it to be helpful and made me seek out other sources for REI education.
He does seem to talk a lot about Non qualifying assumable loans.
They are far and few between these days.
But, in order to “Buy on contract”, the underlying loan does not have to be a NQ assumable.
Read the articles here about “Avoiding the Due On Sale” and also goto www.legalwiz.com.
Any home can be bought “subject to” the existing financing. You just need to do it the right way.
Not one of the homes I have EVER purchased was “Free and Clear”, and not one had a NQ loan.
Some were bought using L/O’s, others with Land Contracts (I assume thats what you are talking about here), and others were simply taken over “Subject to”. (the seller gave me the deed.)
I have been doing this for just over a year now, but still, not one loan has been called. (knock on wood! Õ¿Õ).
If you have not read this site from top to bottom, and studied a course or two, NOW is the time to do so.
Educate yourself a little more than just using Wade Cooks book.
Then, go buy houses!
