Steve Straub – Investment real estate – lease option vs. ren

Steve Straub, CMPS with Straub Consulting in Portland, OR explores the difference between a lease option and rent from an investment property. Steve demonstrates how a lease option can be a powerful strategy to more effectively manage cash flow with a rental property. This is a great win-win strategy for both the owner and the renter because there are a lot of people in the Portland Metro Area who want to buy a home but cannot qualify for various reasons through the traditional mortgage channels. There are over 30 videos at www.straubconsulting.com that educate and share perspectives on ways to build wealth through investing in real estate using long-term hold strategies.

How to buy a foreclosure without lots of cash?

I am not in a position to get another mortgage, nor do I have 40-60k lying around to take advantage of these foreclosures. Is there a way to find a capitalist, or take out another mortgage on these "cash only REO offer foreclosures?" I am thinking their must be a loophole.
This is for a second home to turn into a rental. I allready am getting a first one with my 20 percent down, and decently excellent (730 score) credit

Will I have to pay capitol gains on a property I just bought but lived in for two years with a lease-option?

two years ago a friend and I bought and moved into a house together with a tic agreement, and then we created a lease option agreement between us that I would buy his share of the house after two years. This was a contract between him and I and it wasn’t notarized. I gave him a non-refundable down-payment and I pay the mortgage. Now as am am about to get the financing to buy his share out-right. Then I would like to sell the house. Will I have to pay capitol gains tax on profits from my partner share that he sold to me, considering I only just outright bought the house, even though I have lived there for two years and agreed to buy it two years ago and payed him some then and payed the mortgage since?

What are the typical provisions of a lease/option agreement? i.e. Down Payment, Rent, etc.?

I am currently renting and a home across the street has recently become available for sale by owner. I have recently applied for a mortgage but my approval requires me to complete several items that may take a few months.I approached the owner with the possibility of a lease/option agreement so I may move into the home and leave the rental property. The owner mentioned today an option "fee" of ,500 and monthly rent of ,500 with a final purchase price of 3,900. Does the option fee typically get applied to the purchase price when I complete the sale? Should I request a percentage of my rent to be applied to the final purchase price as well? I haven’t received any of the paperwork yet but just wanted some ideas. I am new to this.
