Understanding "Subject To" Real Estate Transactions

Comments


In real estate investing, creative financing methods can provide substantial benefits for both buyers and sellers. One such method is known as "Subject To" (often abbreviated as "Sub To"), which allows buyers to acquire properties with little to no money down. This strategy can be particularly advantageous for investors looking to expand their portfolios without significant capital outlay. In this article, we'll delve into what "Subject To" transactions entail, the benefits and risks involved, and why you should consider learning more about this method by attending the upcoming "How to Buy Houses Subject to With Little to No Money" workshop.

What is a "Subject To" Transaction?

A "Subject To" transaction occurs when a buyer takes over the seller's existing mortgage while the loan remains in the seller's name. Essentially, the buyer purchases the property "subject to" the existing financing. The buyer makes the mortgage payments on behalf of the seller, but the original loan stays intact without being formally assumed by the buyer. This arrangement can be particularly appealing in various market conditions, especially when traditional financing options are limited or when interest rates are ris

There are plenty of options available when it comes to investing in real estate. However, it can be challenging for new investors to determine which strategy is the best one to start with.

Wholesaling

A wholesale agreement for properties in Dallas-Fort Worth will be important to you as an investor, so make sure you grasp and understand everything about it. Learn more about the process and what to expect in our most recent post!

When two real estate investors/ wholesalers come together to find a distressed property at a low price, a real estate wholesaler agreement or a wholesale real estate contract will be required. The wholesaler enters into a contract with the seller to purchase the property, and then transfers or assigns ownership of the contract to the buyer. In essence, the wholesaler acts as a go-between between the seller and the new buyer, bringing together two people who might not otherwise have come into contact.

Contract Basics

There are many types of investor contracts available in today's investing world.  Some people use a real estate attorney to draft and evaluate for you to ensure that all terms and clauses are legally sound and make sense for all parties involved in the transaction. Many investors use their State-created contracts.  In Texas, we use the TREC 1 to 4 family contract.  Even though nu

What’s stopping you from getting started may be the question you’ve asked yourself for quite a while now. Because this is a simple topic to address, I'm going to keep this post brief today. It cannot be easy to put into practice at times, but the remedy is straightforward.

Here's the million-dollar question: 

"What can I do to overcome my apprehension and procrastination and get started"?

--Get rid of your excuses and your mile-long to-do list.

This week, I've heard more excuses from people who can't seem to get started in real estate investing than I have in a long time. They must wait until the stars are "perfectly aligned" before they can begin. You know, reasons like these:

  • I don't know where to start
  • I haven't chosen a logo yet.
  • I have to make a decision on whether or not to form a limited liability company (LLC).
  • I need to decide whether to use a yellow or green postcard.
  • I don't have a suitable image to utilize in my marketing materials.
  • I'm undecided on whether to use white or colored envelopes for my mailings.
