Other Financing Options for Real Estate Investors

In the last several classes, we covered a variety of traditional financing options, including nothing-down financing, low down payment financing, conventional financing, and portfolio loans. These options represent the overwhelming majority of financing options used when purchasing properties.

However, there are a handful of financing options that are used infrequently, but it's still important to be aware of them. In this mini-class, we will discuss these other financing options, including private money, hard money, utilizing partners for financing, home equity lines of credit, owner financing, life insurance, self-directed retirement accounts, subject to and wrap financing, lease-options/lease-purchases, and foregoing financing to pay cash.
