Making Sandwich Lease Options Simple

Share This Post

Sandwich lease options are the simplest and fastest way to earn real estate investment income and reach financial freedom without taking risks. Both seasoned and beginning investors will be thrilled with the opportunity to control and profit from multiple properties with little or none of their own money tied up in the deals.

People want sandwich lease options. They just need someone to structure the deal for them.

Knowledge is the Power Behind Your Success

With everything to gain and nothing to lose, the only thing holding you back is a fear of learning how sandwich lease options work. I’ve always said that sandwich lease options are win-win-win deals for everyone involved, which is why I think they are sexy.

No capital is needed by you as the investor. What you bring to the table is the knowledge to put these deals together! We all know that knowledge is worth money, and your knowledge is why jittery but hopeful sellers and buyers need you in the middle of the deal!

You will see three profit centers with a sandwich lease option – cash now, cash flow, and cash in the future.

How You Do a Simple Sandwich Lease Option

When I started investing, I didn’t know about sandwich lease options. I thought what I was doing was something like a highly creative zero-down deal. Since then, I have tweaked and retweaked my own tools and techniques as well as added tidbits from all the option courses I’ve been able to find. Over the years, I’ve combined the best of what I’ve discovered into an entire series of courses, audios, and videos. I’ve also completed hundreds and hundreds of lease option contracts as well as helped thousands of students do the same for themselves.

You’ll be amazed at how simple sandwich lease options become when you learn from the experts that came before you!

Three simple steps to a successful sandwich lease option:

  1. Find a seller that wants to earn cash from their property.
  2. Find a tenant-buyer excited about living in the home they will soon own.
  3. Use the contract template to put the deal together.

Sandwich Lease Options start putting money into your pocket long before the entire deal even gets to the closing table. All money made in real estate is made by controlling property. Ownership just adds burdens and responsibilities. The power of sandwich lease options is the knowledge to control the property by putting the deals together without owning the property!

The Ideal Time to Use a Sandwich Lease Option

I don’t always use sandwich lease options. At other times, I use seller financing to get the deed and at other times I use cooperative lease options. Often, I work with Realtors because they have the pulse of the current real estate market. But the sandwich lease option is at the heart of my investing strategy because it is so simple, low risk, and requires little or no cash.

A sandwich lease option is ideal for the beginning investor wanting a simple technique that minimizes risk, has little responsibility, and does not want a bank involved!

Your ability to be flexible with the seller is what creates the ideal situation for a sandwich lease option. Being flexible allows you to create a great deal that is attractive to the seller. You offer flexibility because you’re going to make money no matter how the deal is structured. Tenant-buyers want these deals because it is a sure path to living in a house they want today and can purchase tomorrow.

The sandwich lease option is not a get-rich-quick scheme. With the knowledge to do it right, it puts money in your pocket right away and continues to pay you a steady income stream of several hundred dollars each month. It all leads to a big payday of tens of thousands of dollars when the tenant-buyer completes the purchase.

Your Future Financial Freedom (FX3) happens when you put one, two, or three of these deals in your financial pipeline each month.

You Begin by Simply Understanding the Sandwich Lease Option Financials

John D. Rockefeller said the secret to achieving great wealth is “control everything, own nothing.” That is exactly the strategy of sandwich lease options. When you seek control rather than ownership, you become a lot less concerned with the purchase price. Instead, you become much more interested in the “terms” of the lease. You still need to be reasonable about the price (but less so). However, more of your attention is on the terms such as the initial option fee, how long you’ll have control, and the monthly rent to keep control.

Because you are less concerned with the purchase price, you still profit nicely although you pay the seller close to the full asking price. For you, this opens a massive market that is not available to most real estate investors who are severely limited to only highly discounted distressed sales.

Not every house will be available to you because many sellers want all their money at once. Some of the sellers that you target are those with a vacant house that is costing them money every month. And sellers that need a smaller amount of money very quickly that you can often pay them in a day or two. This creates a much bigger market for you. You are only limited by sellers that must have all their money immediately.

You’ll be surprised how many sellers this appeals to when you offer them Full Price AND Quick Cash!

Your Basic Sandwich Lease Option Strategy

Step 1 is finding a seller that you sign a lease option with. Step 2 is signing a lease option for the same house but with a tenant-buyer. In a sandwich, the meat is in the middle. You are that meat in the middle. The seller and the tenant-buyer bring the bread and butter. That makes it a Win-Win-Win for everyone.

The meat is the best part of the sandwich because it is the financial difference between what you agree to pay for the property and what you sell the property for. PLUS, you are paid a higher lease option fee from the tenant-buyer on Day 1 than the option fee that you pay to the seller. PLUS, you collect a higher monthly rent from the tenant-buyer than you pay to the seller. This earns you a steady income by controlling the property until the tenant-buyer completes the purchase.

There are 3 Winners AND You collect 3 Paydays!

Your big $25,000, $35,000, $45,000 (or more) payday comes at the closing table when the tenant-buyer completes the purchase. At this point, you’ve invested little or none of your own cash, collected a steady income for several months, and banked a big payday in the end. Putting two of these deals in place each month will soon be generating an annual income for you that varies anywhere from $240,000 (12 months X $20,000) to $480,000 (12 x $40,000). How much it actually turns out to be is totally up to you.

Sandwich lease options empower you to make your own financial choices in life (Financial Freedom X3).
