“It Didn’t Matter that I Didn’t Have a Down Payment, Otto Got Me a Loan Anyway. He’s My Mortgage Lender for Life”

I want to include this post card from one of my preferred lenders. I think you will find this very informative.

Dear Friend,

Recently a client was referred to me who was thinking about buying a property but she was unsure if they could buy a home because they didn’t have much money for a down payment. They had found a newly converted condominium complex and could buy a two bedroom unit for only $395,000. The problem was that they had only enough money for the closing costs plus a little extra. The developer had an on site lender but that lender was unable to work with anything less than a 5% down payment. The down payment and the closing costs were more than this young couple had.
Because of the many different lenders I work with, I was able to find a lender who was willing to accept a 3% down payment. I showed them that they could access their 401k without a penalty in order to buy their first home. With three percent from their 401k they had enough to buy the condo.
Since real estate is such a great investment I helped them develop a plan for their wealth creation. It’s a simple plan that will lead them to a great deal of wealth. They will keep this property for the next 7-10 years. Rather than sell it at that point they will draw out some of the equity and buy their next home. Property in our part of California tends to double in value every 10 years. After 10 more years they will repeat the process by purchasing a third home and renting out the second one. They will then have two rentals and a primary home. Three assets appreciating instead of just one.

Your Mortgage Lender for Life.

PS. If you know someone who thinks they need a giant down payment to buy a home, please refer them to me. I have solutions.

PSS. The secret to investing in real estate is “buy and wait” rather than “wait to buy”

Bad Credit History Personal Tenant Loans are monetary assistance provided to those tenants who have neither paid their loans in due time nor do they have any property to stand against the loans that they require. These loans can be used according to the whims and fancies of the borrower that is to say expenditure is entirely the personal domain of borrowers. Whether he wants to meet his educational expenses or wants to buy a new flat or maybe even throw a party to his friends the he can complement the cash shortage by attaining these loans. These loans are usually taken for debt consolidation. If you have any queries about bad credit secured loans, bad credit secured loans UK, bad credit personal secured loans visit

What a walk down memory lane to read about this financing arrangement in 2006. 395k for a condo, only can afford 3% down, and a withdrawal from their 401k to come up with the cash. Fast forward a few years to the housing market crash...
