keep in mind that when your buyer gets financing for the home that you purchased ‘subject to’, the closing agent will give a check for the proceeds of the sale to the trustee. It’s the trustee’s responsibility to disburse the funds to the beneficiary. So you really don’t want the funds going to anyone that you don’t have direct control over. I often make myself or some individual in my company the trustee, and my company the beneficiary. This way I get the funds at closing and then ‘distribute’ the funds to my company. Has worked just fine for dozens of transactions…

I just cannot see mixing business with friendship/family this way -
