Let me get this straight. You don’t own the house? You don’t want to buy the house? You want to find a buyer for the seller and get paid for your services?
Isn’t that practicing Real Estate? Do you have a license? Am I missing something?
sorry for all the question marks.
Strategy for a pretty house that’s free and clear - Posted by Brian O.

Found a really nice 3/2/2, 2000 finished sq. ft., 750 unfin. basement house in great condition. Owner is looking to cash out, move to near Telluride in semi-retirement, asking $315,000. Thought about this strategy:
Have a buyer put $30K down, owner would carry the remaining $285K on an interest-only note (8-10%, monthly of $2000-2400), with a balloon at the end of a year; allowing a buyer with ‘bruised’ credit to get financed. For structuring the deal, I’d get 25% of the monthly rent ($500/month passive income for a year).
How does this offer sound?
