I once sold a rental property for 15% more than the asking price, because the buyer wanted in with just $1,000 down. It is almost paid off now, with never a late payment. I have enjoyed the 9% interest as well. This is a classic win-win deal. The buyer is an experienced investor, and his renters have covered his payments and costs. What other creative low-down deals have any of you seen ? I'd like to collect a few more ideas and examples for my site.
