Do you dream of living a life like Tarek and Christina on ‘Flip or Flop’? Do you know it is possible to fix and flip houses with little to no money down?
Can you really flip a house in Arizona with no money down? YES! Most people believe it is impossible to flip a house with zero money down. Surprisingly, you can do it and it may not be as hard as you can imagine! There is no real hidden secret on how to invest in real estate with no money of your own. Flipping a house with none of your own money will require you to use someone else’s money; this is called OPM (other people’s money). To finance your investment, you will need to find an investor that will lend you the money to rehab the property. You will then pay them interest on the money you borrow.
Where can I find OPM?
There are a few places you can find ways to start investing with no money.
1. Find a partner: A simple way to get funding for your investment is a silent partner. If you have no money but have all the skills and will do all the heavy lifting, find a silent partner. They put the money in, you do the work and you split the profit equally. This could be a family member, a neighbor who has a successful business or anyone you know that has money. Keep in mind that you will do all the work and they will receive the same profit because they fronted you the money.
2. Private Money Lender: A private money lender is just a person with disposable income to invest. They can invest in literally anything; and often they invest in real estate and land. These lenders will have income, but it is income such as investments, mutual funds and IRAs. They will not necessarily have hard assets. To attract a private money lender, you will need to offer them a high enough interest rate that it is worth them lending you the money.
3. Hard Money Lender: A hard money lender is a great way to get funded. What these lenders do is help people by often funding 100% of the purchase at a higher interest rate. The great thing about hard money lenders is they will approve a borrower with “not so perfect” credit. However, you need hard assets. In case you don’t repay the loan, they will have the rights to those hard assets. You will find that their interest rates are higher than traditional loans and your loan terms will be shorter. This is a perfect way to borrow especially if you are confident the house will flip in a reasonably short time.
