5/23/10: Considering Your Options – How to Control Property with Little or No Cash

Options contracts are a powerful, yet often misunderstood and underutilized tool in an investor’s tool box.  What exactly are real estate options contracts?  How do they work?  Most importantly, how can you use them to create profits?

In the studio to explore the subject of real estate options are:

  • Your Permanent Host, Robert Helms
  • Your Optional Co-Host, Financial Strategist Russell Gray
  • The Godfather of Real Estate, Bob Helms

In a market where deals are abundant but financing isn’t, the secret to success is creativity.  But when you’re not familiar with all of the tools, it can be hard to construct a deal structure that works in the real world.  We like options, especially when conventional financing is hard to come by – or the market is skittish.  Times like now.

Options are nothing new, but for many people their one and only perception of a purchase option is one that is attached to a lease agreement.  For this show, we go beyond the run-of-the-mill lease option and focus on several other strategies for using real estate option contracts to put deals together.  We discuss the fundamentals of options and also provide several real life examples of how options contracts can be used by savvy investors to mitigate risk, enhance opportunity and protect profits.

Discover how to use an option to play a rumor, lock in a great price, buy time to arrange financing – and much more!
