As a note broker, I’ve had my share of notes that I simply couldn’t do anything with.  Here’s one I was presented with recently: A delinquent seller carry back note secured by commercial property in West Palm Beach, Florida. The original deal looked like this: Purchase price: $510,000 Down paymen...

I’ve been working on developing an ezine (’Seller Financing on Steroids’) as well as a simple decision making guide for people to use.  I finally got the first draft up, and I’d really appreciate any feedback, especially on how I can improve the Decision Making Guide. The reason I started develo...

It’s hard to keep covered against the chill winds of the market sometimes.  Perhaps it’s possible to get a nice, thick sheepskin warming the front half of your body, but investors, builders and developers are increasingly finding their backsides completely exposed to the elements . . . brrrr!

Seller financing is a great way for foreigners to pick up property in the U.S., as getting a traditional loan can be even tougher for them than us nationals.  Usually seller financing is only applied to non-corporate owned properties (i.e. anything besides short sales or REOs), but there are some...

I recently received this email: “Dear Dawn, I saw your recommendations in the Tribune article on waiting for Recovery. My question to you is should we sell our home now or next year? We bought this home 7/2007 for $950,000.  We have spent $150,000 plus. The last project is to have the outside of ...

People selling business notes need to understand that typically, there are significant d...

I recently received this email from someone who saw a post from last year: Seller Financing and Mobile Homes in Parks, and wanted to know if her mobile on 2 acres of land might be eligible for the land trust transfer technique: Hi! I have two acres with a mobile home on it in Perris, California, ...

I recently consulted with a couple who are renting a home in Pasadena.  They own a home in Tujunga, but instead of selling it when they moved last year, they decided to rent it out, even though it represented a negative cash flow of $500/month. Why not wait to sell until the market ‘recovers?’ Th...

Buying my first commercial building from an owner offering terms several years ago made me an instant fan. I was reminded that the technique is still alive and well. Just a few months ago, 5828 Temple City Blvd. sold for near asking in less than 60 days.  The listing description went something li...

I recently got a call from a gentleman who is selling a duplex here in Temple City, and the first words out of his mouth were, “I want to defer capital gains without an exchange, and it says right here in your ad that you can help me do that.” The 1031 exchange (IRC section 1031) has been one of ...
