This is about smart investors investing even smarter. I don’t hesitate for a second to state that I am fully committed to buying real estate with sandwich lease options because it is the fastest, easiest, and least expensive way of investing.
Bonus Advantage – Along with being the FASTEST, EASIEST, and LEAST EXPENSIVE way to invest, sandwich lease options are ALSO HIGHLY PROFITABLE.
Compare Sandwich Lease Options to Other Investing Methods
Sandwich lease options are not the only way to successfully invest in real estate. TV shows and stars have made the fix and flip method the most glamorous investment strategy – if you imagine glamour as being covered in wallboard dust and spider webs. But a fix and flip falls far short when it comes to being the fastest, easiest, and least expensive way to invest in real estate.
Wholesaling deals have long been a solid way to get started as a real estate investor. But there isn’t much meat left on the bone with a traditional wholesale. It requires finding a “diamond in the rough” at a tremendous discount that you wholesale to another investor for a small profit so that he or she can invest more money to turn the big profit. However, by using the Cooperative Lease Option, you can turn a wholesale deal into a lease option that you get in and out of fast (a few days), easy (find an eager tenant-buyer), and inexpensively (little or no cash to sign a couple of contracts).
And of course, there is the traditional landlord method of investing in real estate. This can be reliably profitable but it’s slow (collecting rent for years and decades), hard work (maintenance and repairs on demand), and expensive (big down payments and mortgages). The sandwich lease option is superior with a short landlord period and zero maintenance.
Enter the sandwich lease options as the FASTEST, EASIEST, LEAST EXPENSIVE, and HIGHLY PROFITABLE way for SMART INVESTORS!
Buying Real Estate with Lease Options is Fast, Easy, and the Least Expensive Method
A sandwich lease option investor is in the meat in the middle of two deals (rent-to-own). The investor seeks out owners that want to sell without going through the traditional listing-for-commission process, or who need to sell very fast for a multitude of reasons.
Buying real estate with sandwich lease options is FAST for several reasons. First, there are only two people coming to a meeting of the minds in the deal – you and the seller. Agents, banks, brokers, escrow companies, and many others that are typically involved in a traditional deal aren’t part of a lease with the option to purchase. A few of these others may become involved way down the road when the tenant-buyer completes the deal but that will only be between the buyer and their mortgage company. As a sandwich lease option investor, you’re never going to need to qualify for a mortgage or sign one. The word “buying” is used loosely here because all you are actually doing is signing a contract with the seller that gives you control of the property for a specific length of time.
“Buying” real estate with a sandwich lease option has a powerful escape clause.
Buying real estate with sandwich lease options is the EASIEST way to invest. Fast often leads to easy for the same reasons. Easy is also about keeping the people involved to a minimum and no mortgage. Another reason is because you have an easy out if the deal doesn’t work to your satisfaction. That is the “option to purchase” part of the deal. It’s easier to enter a deal when you know that if your preferred exit strategy won’t work, you can walk away without a requirement to purchase.
Least expensive because you collect a PAYDAY on Day #1.
Buying real estate with sandwich lease options is the LEAST EXPENSIVE method without a doubt. You gain control for a small or no option fee. With the sandwich lease option, you immediately collect a much higher option fee from the tenant-buyer than you pay to the seller (if you pay anything). You collect that big tenant-buyer option fee the same day the contract is signed!
Sandwich lease options are not only the least expensive, but they are also highly profitable from the very start.
Buying Real Estate with Sandwich Lease Options Brings in the Most Potential Buyers
The advantages just keep rolling in with sandwich lease options. Don’t underestimate the importance of having lots of potential buyers. Having a long list of buyers means selling for a higher profit. Today’s real estate marketplace includes tons of buyers that are on the cusp of qualifying for a mortgage but that traditional sellers won’t talk to.
These are potential buyers that have a huge down payment (to apply to the lease option fee) but the down payment is just a little shy of qualifying for a mortgage. Other sandwich lease option buyers will qualify for a mortgage with a small improvement in their credit score. Many already have a decent credit score but a small improvement means a lower interest rate that lowers the monthly payment enough to qualify for a mortgage to complete the purchase.
A sandwich lease option investor replaces the adversarial relationship that often develops between a traditional buyer and seller when it’s only about money – you’re offering what others don’t offer. Your tenant-buyer can immediately enjoy a delightful home without the hassles of qualifying for a mortgage today.
Tenant-buyers wanting a sandwich lease option are everywhere in today’s marketplace.
What a FAST, EASY, and INEXPENSIVE Deal Means for YOU
Sandwich lease options are a WIN-WIN-WIN for everyone, and as the investor, you certainly don’t come out on the short end of the deal. A few of the advantages you gain as a sandwich lease option investor are:
The longest list of possible tenant-buyers.
A top sales price from tenant-buyers.
A large non-refundable option deposit.
Positive cash flow.
Minimum risk because you’re not the owner on the title.
No commissions or fees.
No maintenance (the tenant-buyer is responsible).
Steady income during the lease period.
A big profit when the home sells.
And many more!
Sandwich lease options are made for smart investors!
Sandwich Lease Options Combine Strategies
Other investments methods are based on one of two strategies. One is to buy and hold long-term for the cash flow. The other is to buy and flip for a fast profit. Buying real estate with sandwich lease options is the best of both worlds – by combining the strategies.
The leasing side is essentially a buy and hold strategy. You may not have bought the property outright, but you do control it during the time of the lease. This entitles you to the rent profits as if you did own it. Also, similar to buy and hold, you gain the appreciation in value when you sell for the price that the home will appraise for a year or two in the future. Even better, you accomplish this without the risks and responsibilities of owning the property.
The combination comes with the flip advantage. Basically, you are flipping it upfront to a tenant-buyer for a profit at the end of the deal. Obviously, their option to buy – for a pre-determined price – is a huge part of the deal. It’s your biggest payday.
It doesn’t get much better than having the advantages of multiple strategies – buying and selling PLUS collecting rent by holding the property in your portfolio without owning it.
Without a doubt, you now understand why I am fully convinced that buying real estate with lease options is the FASTEST, EASIEST, and LEAST EXPENSIVE way of investing in real estate.
