Jason; Thanks for your welcome. I only have 2 months left to get my 5 deals in with Dean's success academy. I live in a high priced real est. area which has been somewhat of a hindrance.Any advice on lease ops. is appreciated.

Lease Options

JJD's picture


Some Great Strategies with "Lease Options" that I was taught:

1. You Can Often Ask Full Market Value + 10% or Higher.
2. By Decreasing THIS Price you can stimulate interest into a Lease Option, which if you Ask Higher Rents on the Front End, You can offer, But do NOT necessarily have to, a nicely lowered Agressive Price.
3. SCREEN, SCREEN, SCREEN your potential Lease Option Tenants/Buyers....I Can Not STRESS that enough. PreQualify, etc.
4. Make Sure ALL terms and conditions that you desire are safely and simply outlined in the Lease-Option Agreement.

Happy Leasing!

Thanks for your note!

Hi Jason,
So sorry that I did not acknowledge your "welcome" till just now! I was accessing My Account to finally set up my profile (as boring as it will be for now), and that's when I first saw your note. So, I want to thank you for showing such kindness; now I won't feel as awkward to get involved like I wanted to in the first place. Look forward to following your journal.

Hi Jason

Thanks for the welcome Jason!and for the advise on the home page as well.... to be honest, once I got into the site for the first time, I was like a kid in a candy store and haven't come up for air yet. Too much great info - too little time as they say and with Dean and the new launch around the corner who has time for profiles!? ( I know that's terrible ) TAKE TAKE TAKE TAKE TAKE! I've even combed all of YouTube for anything that they may have on Dean and Wow! there's quite a bit! Actually, I think I've only been to my home page about 3 times since I joined, maybe less <:-( Thanks for the heads up! Jason, talk to ya soon.

Biz Cards:

I read the post but don't understand how to see the biz cards?
I got off my lazy _ after looking at the box of Dean's course for a year due to lack of $$ and new found time.
(if you get my drift). I would like to see your designs so as to possibly copy some of your ideas if I may.

Hey Jason,

Saw you were online and thought I would see if I could get you to assist a newbie on something. Scenario: I found a buyer from an Ad I placed for 3b/2ba, Owner financing. I had done a search to see properties available and found some in my area. I called the Broker, explained to him what I wanted to do as an investor(don't know if that was the right thing, but i did). Told him if buyer was interested, i would want to do a double closing with the seller. He said that could be done, but I would have a hard time finding a Title company to take accept it. Any input here would be helpful.

Next, how do I send pics of the houses to the interested buyer without giving too much information. How do I show him the properties without being an Agent. My husband is a realtor, but I was told we would not be able to do a double closing if we were married. He acting as my agent, I'm the investor. Any input on how to pull this off would be great! Don't have time to search all this. Potential buyer wants to take a look at properties tonight. Also, what kind of questions should I aske the potential buyer? I asked if he had cash to put down. Think I'm suppose to ask how long Owner needs to carry loan? right. Anything else. Thanks A ton! I owe you! Call if it would be easier/quicker to explain.



Thank You

Re: 60k equity

I will pass for now, Thank You


Hello my name is Jose Guzman and I am really needing some help as soon as possible or I think I will lose out on good deal. I am in Houston,TX and I have potential earnings on a comercial property. Here is the scinorio, a good friend of mine is a club owner and wants to sell the property. I have found a buyer that is very interested and is already on a trial basis working in the club to see how the business works and well its almost a done deal that the buyer will buy. My friend, the owner of the club had already promised me a 4-5% on the sale if it goes through. I want it to be legal but I dont know how to go about it if real estate agents are involved. As far as I know there are no real estate agents involved at this time. I was wondering if I can use an assignment contract and if so how should I handle this? My finders fee would be devided into me and another person which we found the deal for my friend. Any advise would be greatly appriciated. Thank You

Thank you for the welcome

1.Hey jason my name is Kieran and I am brand new here. I just finish reading my book and I have a ? for you.
when a seller is signing a lease option . What are some of the terms I should put in my contract contingency that would protect me just in case the deal doesn't go as plan .

2.DO i put the same contingency that you are about to explain to me from (Agreement to Lease with Option to Purchase)and add the same contingency in Bid Dog and Double Closing or is it different and if so, what are they?

Definitely anything related
