How important is rapport building, really?
"If you want a friend, get a dog"
You're in business to make money today!
You are the one asking the questions.
Play the role of the "reluctant buyer". They need
to sell their house to you. You are not selling a program.
You should know in 3-5 minutes if they are ready to do
a deal
Don't spend so much time explaining your "rent to
own" program to them. Ask them if you can send them an email that explains
everything. Tell them you're in a hurry, or you have a bunch of clients
to talk to, and it would be easier and more efficient if you just
email them some information and they can call you after they review
it if they're interested.
Send them something in the mail (No one is doing this!)
Great questions for sellers
Do you mind if I ask you a few questions about your house to see
if it would even be something I would be interested in?
What's your situation?
How quickly do you need to sell?
What would you like to see happen?
What are you going to do if you can't sell the house? Rent
I am looking for an investment property that I can lease for a
couple years and then buy. That wouldn't work for you, would it?
Sounds like a really nice house. Why haven't you sold it
yet? (Or, why would you even want to sell it?)
"My mortgage broker & I have a bunch of buyers on the
verge of getting a mortgage and are looking for homes in your area."
"What if I could lease your property for 1-2 years, pay
the rent on the 1st of very month, take care of all the day-to-day
maintenance and repairs, then buy the house at the end of that time without
you having to pay any commissions, what would you want to do then?"
Get property under Lease Option contract (A-B)
Go see the house & meet the seller?
Only if you want to
Get the Seller to sign your
agreement on-line
Have the Seller send you pictures
Have the Seller show the home
No negotiating needed with sellers. What do they want? You can
probably get it for them
Set Option Price & Rent
What does the Owner want to
walk away with?
What does the Owner want in
monthly rent?
Rent Credits
Option Price = Seller's Asking Price +
Option Deposit (Your Profit) + Rent
Make sure the seller is current on their mortgage
Advertise the Home (B-C)

Importance of a good CHECKLIST
Find a Quality Tenant-Buyer
Look for 3% Option Deposit
You want to make sure they have a realistic chance of getting
a mortgage in 1-2 years
Can they afford the house? (MOST IMPORTANT)
Have your mortgage broker review application
Background Check
Collect a deposit to hold the house
Assign Lease Option contract to Tenant-Buyer (A-C)
Remove yourself from future risk
Make sure the seller signs off on new TB & accepts
Have my attorney do all your paperwork
Have a third party escrow payment service set up (so you can be
sure the mortgage is being paid)
Collect the Option Deposit as your Profit (Assignment
You're out of the deal
You are just assigning your rights to buy the home
Use my Attorney & Escrow Company
Make sure the Tenant-Buyer gets into a good credit repair program
and is working with a mortgage broker
