Why don’t you approach Realtors about financing a trip to Mars. About as likely to get there as to Realtor help you on a creative fi deal.
The problems here are probably threefold. One is that the Realtor only knows one way to deal. Get the listing, find the buyer, find the mortgage, close. They don’t know how to do anything else. Second problem is that you need a motivated seller. If a motivated seller comes to a Realtor, the Realtor is either going to snap the property up for himself, or, thirdly, turn it over to his investor partner.
The answer is to make the motivated seller come to you. And that’s easy, but takes a little bit of marketing work.
