Should You Allow Buyer To Rent During Closing?
It's not uncommon for an investor to sell a house and have the buyer request the right to rent and occupy the property while the closing is being completed.
You're a bad guy if you refuse and often in hot water of you agree. Here are the potential problems with renting before closing:
1. Buyer is in the home for two months and then the potential lender decides the buyer can't qualify for the mortgage loan. Now that's bad news!
2. Buyer is in the home for two months... gets a bad case of buyer's remorse and wants out of the deal. Now that's bad news!
3. Buyer is in the home for two months and comes to the closing table with a long list of needed repairs he has discovered during residency. Now that's bad news!
4. Buyer is in the home for two months during which time he does serious damage to the property and then disappears. Now that's bad news!
Is there any good news? Well, you are getting rent money for those two or so months.
Let's check the score card:
Bad News = 4Good News = 1
I would say that the investor comes out on the short end of that game. Let's agree that the only time you rent during closing is if you are in dire need of that rental income.
If you must rent then you must carefully prepare a lease agreement. No handshake deals allowed!
If the buyer/renter refuses to close the deal for any reason, the only way you can get them out of the property is if you have a rental agreement that gives you the right to evict. It must also be a short term lease, so there is no misunderstanding about the buyer/renter remaining in the property if the deal goes bad.
In the purchase agreement you must spell out exactly, in a dollar amount, what repairs or improvements you will pay for. The agreement should indicate the buyer has had an inspection period and is buying subject to your limits on repairs and costs... now and in the future. If legitimate defects are found in the property during the rental period you can negotiate a solution.
You must collect sufficient security deposit to cover rent and potential damage the renter/buyer might inflict upon the property.
Look, if for some reason you feel you must accommodate the buyer during the closing period? pay for a motel room. Chances are it will be far cheaper in the long rund.

What To Expect In Closing Costs On A Home Purchase
Many are taking advantage of this year's low mortgage rates to purchase a home. Pent up with excitement, many families, who have scrimped and saved for a down-payment, jump for joy when the mortgage lender finally approves their application.
Choosing a Realtor
Purchasing a property, either as an investor or as a prospective homeowner can be one of the most exhilarating and frightening experiences of your life. In both situations it is imperative that you find just the right property at the right price.
Real Estate Investing in Rentals - the $10 Million Real Estate Investing Mistake
Renting to tenants is no longer "where the money is" for real estate investing. I became a multi-millionaire landlord in the 1980s by buying $10 million in rental houses.
Investing in Residential Real Estate: Achieving Positive Cash Flow
When investing in real estate, it is highly desirable to achieve positive cash flow on a month-to-month basis. This is true even if you are counting on property value appreciation to supply the bulk of your desired return on investment.
Home Equity or Debt Trap?
Are you using the equity from your home to purchase everyday things? This is a dangerous trend growing more popular every month as millions of Americans tap into the value of their home to fund a lifestyle.How many times have you heard the saying "Your home is the best investment you'll ever make"? How many times have you also heard that your home will be the most valuable asset you will ever own?Both of these are as true, if not truer, today than at any time in the past.
Things To Consider Before Buying a Condo Hotel or Resort Residence
Resort home ownership, such as condo hotels and fractional shares is different from typical home ownership. So it is important to ask certain questions before signing the purchase agreement on a resort property.
Make Your House Earn Its Keep
Did you realise that there is a lot you can do get an income from what is probably your most valuable asset? Not only is your property a great (long-term) investment, your home could also bring you an income while you are still living in it. Here are some ideas to make your property really earn its keep.

Real Estate: Buyers Agent, Sellers Agent & Dual Agent (defined and explained)
There is a relatively new and not always well understood practice in Real Estate sales; it is called Buyer Agency or Buyer's Agent. Until recently Realtors and agents usually represented the seller, in opposition to the buyer, during the real estate transaction.
Dealing With Difficult Tenants
When managing residential properties one bad tenant can often undo the good work that one hundred excellent ones may have achieved. A bad tenant is a bad tenant regardless of whether they are in the West Riding, Western Australia, Westchester, Wanganui or the Western Isles.
Prepare Your Property Like A Pro And Boost Profits
The housing market is hot, and you've decided to list your home. But what, if any, improvements should you tackle before selling? Should you just leave it all to the new homeowner?There are two ways to look at pre-sale home improvements.
Real Estate Investing: Infomercial and Mentoring Scams
Flipping through late-night infomercials recently, I saw two real estate get-rich quick schemes, and I couldn't help but wonder why people still fall for those old scams? Has anyone really talked a seller out of his home for no money down with owner financing lately?Real estate infomercials do great harm to beginning investors, who waste hundreds of dollars on old information. Worse yet, those beginners soon get discouraged and miss out on the true (and profitable) adventure of real estate investing.
Look Past the Bottom Line for a Propertys Potential
It's unfortunate that many real estate investors tend to look at the bottom line when deliberating about a property, rather than the big picture. The real moneymakers in real estate investments are the people with vision, who think creatively, and are willing to assume some level of risk.
Do You Know What Design/Construct (or Design/Build ) Means? I Think You Should!
These real questions on 'How To' build are answered by a US Master Builder and myself from the development viewpoint, after I received them from readers of my e-book, "Residential Development Made Easy."Question 1.
Finance Your Real Estate Investment Properties
Unlike traditional residential real estate mortgages, real estate investment financing is way more creative and offers more options than you think. The golden rule in real estate investment is OPM (Other People's Money).
