Can anyone give us an example of how to get your money from a retail flip.
I thought that getting your money at closing was fairly simple, but after reading some post by other board members I see that this may not be the case.

I have read Jackie’s articles but they provide little info on the retail flip. I have a deal that I am about to lock down and I wanted to know what problems I should be prepared for other than not finding a buyer.

More specifically, what problems will I encounter with the buyers lender and the title company???

I have a house that I’m going to tie down tomorrow with an option.

The numbers look like this

House market value is 240k
Option price is 210k
I will pay all closing when I find a buyer approximately 14,000.00
Leaving me with about 16k

How do I struure this deal so that it goes well???

Thanks as always
