answer most individuals would say if polled is no! But I
believe the better question is - why not?
at why I believe everyone should employ this strategy for real
estate investing, whether as a novice or seasoned
professional. Let me pose a question: Why do we get involved
in real estate investing? To make money of course! However,
there is a myth circulating within the investing community
that traditional real estate and creative real estate
investing has minimal risk. Nothing could be further from the
truth- let me explain.
I have been
involved in real estate and other forms of investing for over
20 years and I can say without hesitation that all investing
has risk, some more than others that being said there is
always one exception to the rule, in this situation itís Lease
Purchase. You receive all the benefits of control of the
property without ownership- how can you beat that scenario? If
the deal doesnít pan out the way you thought it would or the
market turns against you in the future, thus turning a
profitable transaction into a potential negative one you can
walk away without losing hundreds of thousands of dollars.
How? Because you have not invested that kind of capital in the
first place. We, as smart lease purchase investors construct
are contracts with iron clad terminology which provides us
with escape options.
Purchasing, AKA Rent To Own is the ultimate creative real
estate niche strategy and can be used to control single family
homes, condos, town homes, mobile homes, land and
multi-dwellings. This strategy can also be used on
foreclosures, probate, tax lien property and in place of low
or no money down strategies. We can use this strategy in an
up, down or side ways market while commanding 15%-20% above
market rents and selling prices. The best part of this great
strategy is I can give full price offers if I so choose and
still make money. Do you think this alone will cause you to
secure more deals?
conclusion, I hope you can see the power of lease purchasing
as I did many years ago this is truly real estate investing
leverage at itsí best.
