Alternative Financing in Central,TX?

Asked by bluewaveus, Greenville, SC Thu Jan 31, 2013

Anyone know of alternative financing options in Texas? Austin, TX metro area. We're in a Lease/Purchase and need to close soon. Probably a few months away from qualifying for traditional mortgage, so looking for a bridge mortgage.

Best bet is to renegotiate lease with your current owner.
Unless you have a lot of cash or a lot of equity in the property, no one that makes sense is going to want to do this in most cases.

Hard money is 8-10%, but maybe only wants to finance 75% loan to value, so that's why you have to have nice cash or equity. So if you had to try to go that route, you might have a better chance of just offering that to the current owner.

I'd suggest you turn to your REALTOR who advised you to get into a lease to purchase deal in the first place. I"m sure they helped you with an exit plan.
