Sub-2 equity capture...possible?

1 Reply

Hey guys & gals! I got a transaction idea and I'm looking for some feedback on it. Here it is: 

1. Get a Sub2 deal

2. Close it in a Land Trust w/title transfer

3. Pull out equity later for reinvesting the funds

Any plausibility to this?

Hi @Rodney Dixon . Steps 1 & 2 are tricky but very do-able. The magic occurs in Step 3. How do you plan to "pull out equity?" Banks aren't going to lend to a land trust, and the Sub2 might confuse a lender into wanting the underlying mortgage borrower to get involved, which isn't likely.

I wouldn't bet on this working.
