Buying Commercial with No Money Down

Can you imagine buying a 220 unit apartment complex with no money down.  Which produces 1,655,000,00 income

Well it's being done in todays market. The banks are making it easier to walk right in to take over the existing mortgage. What makes it so fantastic is it's also common for the owner to carry back up to 7.5% sometimes even more. This helps you with your down payment.. With a little negotiating skill, can you see the cashflow coming in?

 The deals are everywhere. Talk to distressed property owners, and take action today.

  6. Hi Ron, I have a commercial property that I believe is the real deal. A no-brainer if you will. It is a cash flowing property and I would love to find out more on how to obtain this deal with no money down. Tell me what your take on this please. 895K purchase price 685K assumable loan (7% 30yr amortization due in 6 yrs) Bank is in place to refinance to 6% for 30yrs when we purchase. 210K balance 30K Earnest Money 270K Gross Income 148K NOI 100% rented out (no vacancy for the last 4yrs with waiting list) 100K grant for window replacement (transferable with purchase of LLC) 4yrs of taxes shows profit of no less that 112K annually


  7. Thank you for all of your recent replies . First I'd like to say, so many people are searchung for the right deal out there. i have come to realize that the relationships I hane developed are more valuable than money. Obviously I know something that many of you don;t know. No offense intended. What I mean is I work by a strict list of fundamentals. Rule number One is I see myself as a problem solver, not an investor. My associates are inveators. I'm more of a generalist than a specialist. I only deal with or intend to deal with Recession Proof Property. My investors only want to deal with them in this market. What I look for is cash flowing property. With quick turn around. Apartment complexes, Storage facilities, Senior Housing, Assisted Living Complexes, and Mobile Home Parks. Each has their own criteria, but in general they all cashflow in this economy. I also look for non recourse loans in these situations when possible. With good exit strategies. My investors don't want to invest more than 50% market value. Now you may think that these properties don't exist, but I assure you they do. Understanding the foreclosure process, which I'm sure anyone on this site does, you must understand that timing is everything. Before the property goes to auction we have what we know as the redemption period. In some cases what is owed is far less than what is being asked. Why not make an offer at cost, or even assume the existing loan. If what is owed is considerably less than market value and you can solve the owners problem why wouldn't your investor sign off on it. A deal is a Deal.


  8. Ron, Would you mind giving more details about a recent deal? Thanks.


  9. I agree with Ted. I am hearing about all of these "deals" but I haven't seen any.


  10. The commercial market is clearly in the early stages of at least a minor crash. Many say much more than "minor". Any details on the types and structures of the deals you are doing or seeing done would be great.


  11. We haven't been pursuing REO's, but the banks we have talked to still want equity put in to the REO's, even if it's just for the rehab. What type of deals are you seeing?


  12. Thanks for the info, Ron.


  13. Hi Ron. Do you have any examples of recent no money down commercial deals? Office buildings?
