Creative Financing
« on: February 04, 2004, 06:17:23 am »
I would like to know everyones opinion on how does one avoid a down payment when buying a property. I have heard about assignments, owner financing, quitclaim deeds coupled with non exclusive option. What other ideas does anyone have!

The last deal I did I put up $500 that I borrowed as earnest money. I agreed to pay $28,000 for the property and I got a $35,000 loan. I paid 3 months interest up front and had to escrow $2200 for repairs from the loan.  I had to actually take another $760 to the closing for a total down payment of $1260. I also had to pay $300  for the appraisal. Hope to sell it in a few months for about $10,000 to $12,0000 profit. I have done better deals where I actually goy money at closing as much as $5000 on one deal. The lender knew about the deal and actually required 6 months payment up front which was an additional $3600 that I would have gotten. I did collect rent without making a payment which was kind of nice.

Good luck and thank you,

To do no money deals, most likely you'll need a motivated seller.
Try LO, Sub2, CFD also a grant program works.}

Do not use contract for deed in Texas unless you passed the bar exam and do not mind going to court a lot. Lot harder laws to follow and stiff penalties. Stay away from CFD's

There are so many ways to do no money down deals, it would be quite a lengthy post.

Remember that no money down doesn't always mean that the seller doesn't get cash and it also doesn't mean that a downpayment isn't made.

You can use a credit card for a downpayment, that isn't your money.

You can have a good enough relationship with a bank where they will fund the entire purchase.

You can have a partner bring the needed cash to the closing.

You can have the seller give you 100% financing.

You can have the seller take back a second that covers the bank's required downpayment.

You can lease option a house with -0- down.

You can get a house under contract and flip it with nothing down.

You can sub2 a property and pay the arrears (if there are any) or any equity to the seller with your buyer/tenant buyer's deposit to you.

and on and on.

Lots of ways to do it. Use your imagination.
