Buying investment property is a great way to build a portfolio that delivers wealth now and sets you up for a comfortable retirement in the future. But buying property can be expensive if you’re not careful. In this blog post, you’ll learn how to buy an investment property in Chicago with no deposit.
There are few types of investments better than real estate. Real estate assets appreciate over time, they’re an excellent hedge against market declines, and the cash flow you get from a rental property is a game-changing way to build wealth.
Unfortunately, many investors find that real estate investment properties can be too expensive to purchase, even just saving up a deposit for each property you want to buy can really add up and you might find it difficult to save up enough money for a deposit. Fortunately, if you want to know how to buy an investment property in Chicago with no deposit, there are 3 effective strategies to use.
How To Buy An Investment Property In Chicago With No Deposit
Strategy #1. Seller Financing
If the seller is willing, they might “be the bank” and offer terms like a mortgage, so you can skip the deposit and just pay them directly over a period of years until the property is paid off.
Strategy #2. Buy Privately From An Investor
If you have the money available, perhaps in your IRA, but simply do not want to pay the deposit then you may want to buy privately from an investor. They may not require a deposit if you are able to arrange full payment in a certain amount of time. (Sometimes the investor might require a deposit to indicate you’re serious but you can also often get around this by buying multiple times from the same investor). At Chicago Home Buyers, we sometimes sell some of our properties this way, or we are connected to other investors who do. So reach out to us at (312) 300-2043 and we’ll see about how we can help you.
Strategy #3. Partner With Another Investor
If you have the capital available to buy the house but perhaps you don’t have a deposit available, then consider partnering with another investor who will put up the deposit for you. Since the deposit might just be a fraction of the purchase price of the investment, you might consider giving them a portion of your ongoing cash flow, or paying them back the loaned amount plus interest.
