“I’ve been Reading Your Blogs on Activerain”

 

 

 

I have been reading some of your blogs on Activerain, I wonder if you can help me with the financing of a 10 unit apartment house. The asking price is $475,000, so the challenge is I don’t have a down payment. I make a good income and credit is very good as well. Is this something you can do?

 

Nick

 

Seriously? I’m very good at what I do and can be pretty creative, but a request like this is crazy. I’m sure there were times a transaction like this might have been able to be accomplished, but not by me. I want someone to have skin in the game when buying investment properties. Whenever there is a doubt for me, I will ask myself, “Would I loan my money?” Hell NO and I wouldn’t want anyone else to either. 

 

I have seen transactions done when a seller took a second mortgage for the down payment, it’s pretty risky business but a desperate seller would do something risky. There were a lot of shenanigans that went on over the years, but it’s not my thing.

 

I’m sorry Nick, I can’t help you.
