Learn What No One Tells You About Owner Financing Real Estate – Especially Your Realtor!
If you’d like to discover the best kept secrets of lenders, pension firms, real estate investors, and professional note buyers, this book is for you. You won’t find this information anywhere else and here’s why:
1. Real estate attorneys and real estate agents are not taught this information in real estate school or by their licensing real estate commission. THEY don’t even know this information, and yet are PAID to provide you counsel when it comes selling your home and carrying back the financing. No one, other than professional investors and note buyers, are aware of how to safely structure an owner financed transaction. And until now, no one has written this information down for us “mom and pop” home sellers.
2. The information below comes from the private notebook of Christen Reinke, the owner of a mortgage purchasing and commercial brokerage firm. Christen has spent the last five years recording the mistakes of her clients – mistakes that in some cases, cost them their life savings/investment! Since she is independent from Realtors, title companies, and attorneys, she is loyal to you and I – it makes no difference to her whether you choose to sell your home with owner financing or not. But if you do – you can at least do it without being at the mercy of realtors
