Hi! It’s Lou Brown. With another one of my 101 ways for real estate investors like you to win, close more deals, accelerate your cash flow. Today’s tip is number 18. And it is, Offer to buy the property subject to the existing financing. Oh my goodness! Changed my life. The first property I ever bought was when I was 18 years old. I was able to do that by taking over the payments, taking over the existing financing on the property. How powerful that was? Back in the day, they had a thing called NENQ Loans, Non-Escalating, Non-Qualifying loans. But Congress, in its infinite bought wisdom. Of course the banks, we all know the influence the politicians by a thing called contributions to their campaigns. Right? And so one of the things they created in 1982 was a law called the “Garn-Saint Germain Federal Depository Institutions Act” which allowed the banks to put a clause in their mortgages called the Due Upon Sale clause.
Well, there were exceptions to that clause and one of the things we did was create an entire system around those exceptions. I’m going to be teaching and sharing that with you. It’s a very powerful and amazing thing, but we still to this day buy properties by taking over the existing financing on the property. Imagine that you could just step in, take over payments, continue to make the payments that the seller actually qualified for the loan. They paid the closing costs, they paid all the expenses of that loan and you can step in. Maybe you’re 15 years into that loan and you now step in and start making the payments for the next 15 years. Wouldn’t that be a powerful and wonderful thing? Again, the seller is the bank. And I loved that when I can take over the existing financing. You don’t have to go to the bank.
You don’t have to qualify for loans, you don’t have to pay closing costs. You don’t have to pay points. Very powerful. You can save a fortune one transaction worth thousands of dollars simply by using that amazing thing called “Buying a property subject to the existing financing”.
