Real Estate Investors – Using Newspaper Ads to Get Motivated Sellers to Call You

Obviously you’re aware that in terms of the private lending process, I do not recommend newspaper ads for a number of reasons. To get sellers, newspaper ads work. They don’t work great and they have to be done right to get a good response, but what’s nice about newspaper ads is if they’re done right, they don’t cost a lot of money.
They’re completely evergreen, meaning once you set it up, they just crank week after week after week. They will produce a steady stream, not overwhelming, but you will get calls over time.
 
Use Small Newspapers
The important thing about a newspaper ad is you do not want to be placing it in a big newspaper like the Philadelphia Inquirer. In fact, the Philadelphia Inquirer may not be here in the next few months. If you live in a big town, the big newspapers are absolutely out of …

Using Lease to Own As an Exit Strategy on a Real Estate Investment

When it comes time to sell your rental property, you might want to try selling it using a rent to own or lease to own agreement. This type of agreement allows your tenants to live in the home as a renter as they work towards purchasing it from you.
In a rent to own situation, you would typically have a standard rental lease along with a separate contract that contains the option for the tenant to buy the rental property during a set time period.

However, the tenant can decide not to buy and are not obligated to buy. They simply have the option to purchase.
