Guys, I have a friend who lost his job and has since found a significantly lower paying job. Well he can’t afford the house he’s presently living in (he’s 3 months behind on his house payments)I’m trying to convince him to let me take over the house. He is dead set against parting with it. I sense his desparation but the guy is STUBBORN! I need advice on the quickest and cheapest way to take over when he finally see’s the light.

It’s a 90k house he owes about 72k on it.

Alex G. has a thread above about preforeclosure. In it he talks about what the seller wants. He does not want a vulture stealing all his equity. What you have to convince him of is that he needs to move because he can’t afford the place. Then help him L/O or some other form of creative solution. You can be in between so that you make some money while he doesn’t loose everything. Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered.

…help the person try to refinance the house. Then when that fails, and the person realizes they have exhausted all of their options, they will come to you because you tried to help. That’s when you offer to take over payments. If he is a friend and the deal supports it, give him a thousand or two to help him get into a rental. Good luck!!
