Need money to buy your dream house?

There is a new program called REX Home buyer and its a kind of shared appreciation of real estate, Hedge funds, pension funds and the like are getting into this.

They will provide up to half of the down payment when you buy and you give up 40% of the equity when you sell. This is not a new concept. Everything goes away and comes back again when the timing is right. Look into it if you think it might help you.

This is what investors should be doing

They have lots of “pocket listings” this way- people who are considering selling. They don’t wait until the home owner is ready to sell. It’s too late then.

This is what real estate investors should be doing in a hot sellers market. If you wait until it is listed, lots of luck. You will be outbid by a cash buyer who does not care about comps.
