You have come up with a legitimate investment approach that could lead to super-bargain deals.

This technique is one of about two dozen which are discussed in Jack Reed’s book “How to Buy Real Estate for at Least 20% Below Market Value.” His website is at . It is call “buying the right of redemption” there.

You do not have the property owner “assign the mortgage to me.” You get a deed from the owner, probably a quit-claim deed. Or perhaps there is some other document which could transfer the right of redemption to you.

If you are going to get into foreclosures, I highly recommend that you read the law for your state, MN, I believe. You might want any paperwork to be scrutinized by an attorney that understands foreclosure laws in your state.

I’m thinking of contacting people whose homes have been foreclosed on and offering them a few thousand dollars to assign the mortgage to me. If there’s enough equity, I’d have a partner put up cash to pay off the mortage and any other items (liens, taxes, etc.) needed. Then I’d get it ready for resale. Might flip a couple to start.

The redemption period in Minnesota is six months.

Is anyone else doing this? Having any success? Got any tips?
