HOME PRICES TODAY ARE
Inventory is artificially tight even though there are still MILLIONS of foreclosures, short sales and REOS.
Yet in many areas, sellers can’t get rid of their properties because the financing falls through for some “reason.”
You know why.
ESPECIALLY if you’re an investor.
Are banks lending?
Sure… IF you have near perfect credit, a hefty down payment and you intend to live in the property. Frankly that just doesn’t describe any real estate investor I know – especially someone just getting started.
Big hedge funds that are LOADED with cash like Blackstone are snapping up 10s of 1000s of houses across the country. But you don’t need to be a Wall Street Genius to know that NOW is the absolute best time to buy real estate.
You need to get in the game.
When the going gets tough, the tough get CREATIVE
Creative Real Estate…
For Today’s Real World
Oh yeah, you’ve heard it all before:
- No money down
- Make $10,000 (or more!) in your first 30 days
- Become a real estate mogul and fire your boss!
And that can be done. It has been done. But if you look at the small print in those ads, you’ll see (in teeny-tiny letters) “Results not typical.”
Here’s what they don’t tell you.
Most of those techniques and strategies came about in the 70s and 80s when the original “no money down” gurus made their money. Frankly, real estate was the Wild, Wild West back then.
- Mortgages were assumable.
- You didn’t have to qualify.
- There was no “Due on Sale” clause in mortgages.
- Lending decisions were made by PEOPLE, not computers.
- Regulation was close to non-existent.
In fact, to say there were fewer rules and regulations back then would be a GROSS UNDERSTATEMENT.
Have you noticed all the regulations that have come in are designed specifically to benefit the banks and Wall Street and to
So is creative real estate dead?
NOT BY A LONG SHOT!
Let me tell you why.
The fact that the banks are being very stingy with their money is a HUGE BENEFIT TO YOU.
Why? It’s not just investors who can’t get financed. Most people have barely made it out of the recession with the shirts on their backs. Their credit is not just dinged – it’s been TOTALED! People have lost their jobs, lost their houses, and are fighting their way back.
The American people are tough. If they get knocked on their butts, they’re going to stand right back up and slug their way out of this mess. But you can bet the banks aren’t helping them.
That’s where the creative real estate investor – YOU – come in.
Let’s look at sellers. I mean someone who is not in foreclosure. Someone who is not upside down in his house. Someone who didn’t pay top dollar at the height of the boom and then refinanced every last penny out of the property.
Maybe it’s a tired landlord. Maybe it’s someone who took a new job and had to move and now is paying on two mortgages. Or someone who needs to downsize or grow into a bigger house but can’t until they sell the one they are in. There’s a divorce, or a marriage, a new baby or your elderly mom comes to live with you. Normal situations that happen every day in the real world. What happens when an owner tries to sell a house that is NOT in distress?
He still has to sell at distress prices. WHY? Because that is where the market is at. He is competing with foreclosures and short sales. And if his house needs some fix up and the REO property down the street that is listed for the same price doesn’t, he’s at a distinct disadvantage.
EXCEPT FOR ONE THING …
Both properties are going to have a hard time finding a “qualified” — meaning “bank financeable” — buyer.
Go ahead. Ask real estate agents or loan officers how many financed deals are actually closing. Ask them what percentage of sales that closed were CASH DEALS.
You will hear horror stories of deals falling through at the closing table. Lenders insisting that the buyer put more money down or holding a buyer hostage by insisting a short sale isn’t an arm’s length transaction and charging an extra $2,000 – $5,000 to look the other way. Even – yes, this is true – requiring the buyer to deposit an amount EQUAL TO THE LOAN AMOUNT into a new account at their bank.
So if a seller can’t find a qualified buyer, what happens?
The house sits. The payment eats away at the owner a month at a time. He wants to move forward with his life but he has an anchor — this HOUSE — that is holding him back.
Real estate is a people business. A person with a house they can’t sell is a person with a problem. Creative real estate investing is all about solving people’s problems, finding a way to help them out of their situation that is beneficial to you. It’s got to be a win/win deal. You’re not in the charity business. You are in this for the profit. But you will find that if you can solve a person’s problem, you can make a lot of money.
Sellers are more open to creative real estate techniques because they don’t really have a choice. Their buyers can’t get financed. They are stuck. That doesn’t mean they are going to welcome some crazy, off-the-wall offer with open arms. Your offer has to be logical. The owner has to feel secure in doing the deal. And you need to be able to demonstrate why selling his house to you on terms is the right thing for him.
Most importantly, you have to do it legally. You have to do it ethically. You have to do it right.
And that means laying down a solid foundation of strategies, techniques and systems that will cause you to meet your personal real estate objectives.
