How Do You Profit From O.P.P.?
In a previous article we introduced you to the concept of O.P.P., or Other People's Property, and the many ways in which you can profit.
In that article we asked you what you would do if you found a business that:
Remember, what we are talking about is a wonderful business that allows you to generate immediate cash flow and also build your long term net worth.
That business revolved around the Creative Real Estate niche of Lease Purchasing.
This article, the third in the O.P.P. series will briefly touch on some of the strategies that are available to the Lease Purchase consultant.
First, is the co-operative strategy. It is the easiest for the beginner to start with. The co-operative is used when the seller may not want to give over total control of his/her property. The seller wants some say as to who goes into the property. When we assign the contract to a tenant/buyer, we receive the assignment fee. It typically takes us about two weeks to move a property, and we usually look for a $5,000 assignment fee.
The co-operative strategy, along with all the other strategies available to you, can be utilized for all types of property: single family, mobile homes, townhouses, condos. It works well with sellers who are motivated; with investors who have rental property and for those sellers who are not in a rush to move their property.
This is a favorite strategy of ours.
Some of the other strategies available to you in lease purchasing are:
The sandwich deal. This is when you lease purchase the property and then sub-lease to a tenant/buyer. It affords you great profit potential. You can collect money up front as option consideration, you receive the positive cash flow and you can make additional money at the end if the option is exercised. For those of you not familiar with the term positive cash flow, this is the difference between what the tenant/buyer pays you and what you pay to the original seller.
With the next strategy, the straight assignment, you contract for the property and assign or sell that contract to a tenant/buyer. This does not require the seller's approval. In the straight assignment you make your money in assigning the contract to a tenant/buyer. Remember too, you can sell a straight assignment to an investor.
The pure option. The pure option on a property allows you to purchase the home at a future date. The terms also are set. You can take the pure option and sell it to another investor. Again you want to negotiate good terms for yourself, so you can make money when you flip this to an investor. This is a very fast way to generate cash flow.
There are other strategies available to the Lease Purchase consultant, such as the cash or cash equivalent strategy, note creation and of course, our favorite, consulting. We'll cover these in a future article.
The niche of Lease Purchasing grants you the ability to reach your financial freedom, with O.P.P., Other Peoples Property. All it takes is the desire to succeed, some time investment on your part and some specialized knowledge.
What are the benefits to the business owner?
* Little start-up capital needed.
As you can see, Lease Purchasing comes very close to being the Perfect Home-Based Business. A realistic first year income is $50,000 to $75,000 for someone working full time. You can add $20,000 to $30,000 to your present income on a part time basis.
Don't you think you owe it to yourself to explore the potential of O.P.P.?
