Use a Purchase Option to Lock in a Discounted Price

  You can use a purchase option to lock in a discounted price.  This means you are protecting the time invested in sourcing, negotiating and structuring the deal, and you are effectively locking out the competition. The power of this lies in the fact that the seller has granted you an exclusive right to buy within a defined and agreed time period.  Notice the word “exclusive”.  The seller is not able to sell to anyone else, except you. At the same time you are able to sell the contract on to another purchaser, transferring the right to buy at the discounted price to them for a fee. Let’s look at a real example from a North East town.   The seller had been marketing a very large and now empty house for nine months.  With no rental income the monthly mortgage payments of £475 was crippling. Having started a new business...

How to get more deals with less effort!

Find deals immediately at no upfront cost to you! By Simon Zutshi One of the quickest ways to find BMV deals is to contact other investors who are already finding motivated sellers and ask them if you can have some of their leads that they are not interested in or ones that they cannot convert. This is one of the strategies I teach on my one day “Property Investing Quick Start” seminars, because it is a NO RISK method of you obtaining leads immediately at NO UPFRONT COST to you. You can find these people at property networking events or just contact people who are advertising to find motivated sellers. By now you might be thinking: this sounds like a great strategy but why on earth would an investor not want some of their leads? Well there are two main reasons: 1)    Most investors have a certain criteria that they are...
