What Is A Lease Option

What is a lease option? Friend, I’m glad
you’re watching this video because today, out of all the strategies that I have
used to build wealth from the world of real estate, I’m going to be sharing with
you my absolute number one, absolute favorite. It’s called the lease option. So, I want to share with you how I
discovered this because years ago, I was a brand-new investor. I hadn’t made the
millions of dollars, I hadn’t you know, created the amazing lifestyle that I
have today. And I was just starting out. I was nervous but I was hungry. And right
now, if you’re watching this I want to ask. Are you hungry? Les Brown, famous
motivational speaker and that big rich deep black voice what do I say, “Are you
hungry?’ And this hunger is this idea of what’s
motivating you. If you’re watching this video, I’m going to impart all that I can to
show you how to build wealth today in your life. And literally, lease option
just gets me tickled pink because I’m going to show you exactly how I stumbled on it
and then how I mastered it. So, my buddies were also investing at the time and they
had already bought several homes. And I had just bought my first house. And they
basically said, “Kris, you need to do a lease option.” I’m like, “Well, what is that?’
And they described this handmade sign. They said, “We want you to go to the, you
know, the the supply store like officemax or wherever you get that bright
fluorescent poster board.” You know what I’m talking about?
And they said, “This is what we want you to write. Rent… (In bad handwriting by the
way. Don’t print this out. Not a professional sign.) Rent to own.’ It didn’t
go off the edge like that. But it said Rent To Own. No bank qualifying. And then
it had my phone number. That this is not really my phone number. I don’t know how
you guys still managed to get my phone number. But I swear, it’s out there
somehow and I’m constantly getting text from you guys. And you’re awesome and I
love watching you rock it in real estate. There’s a phone number and you put this
sign basically out there. And bright colored hideous and you put it on just
like a stand and you plunk that in the yard. They said, “You’ll start getting
calls like crazy.” So on my very first house, I’m doing this for the very first
time. And I put that sign out in the yard on that on that first investment
property I had. And sure enough I started getting calls. “Tell me about the house.”
And they had instructed me, “Don’t answer questions on the phone.
Go bring people to the house and then do an open house.” So that next weekend, I had
an open house. I had a few families walk on through. And they said, “well, what is
this?” and I was just following what was given to me and then I’m
the rest. And basically, I said, “Well, rent to own means instead of renting and stop
wasting your money. You can buy it.” I own this house. I’ll be the bank and I’ll
help you buy it in a few years. And that definitely had an attraction to a lot of
people. So, they would walk through the house. They have fall in love with that.
They get excited and then they basically said, “Okay, so how does this work?” I want
to show you the flyer. I’d put this flyer together and this is
what I had learned. Now my mortgagee, what I want you to understand this. I got a
sweet, sweet, deal on this house. When you do a house, you should always have a
sweet deal. You should always be like freaking excited about the numbers on
the deal. So, I got this house and I purchased it for a hundred and fifty
thousand dollars. But on this exact house, it actually had a value around $230,000. So, I was excited because the difference
between 150 grand and 230, that’s an $80,000 spread. Like, I
felt like I hit the jackpot. Like, that was way, way, way, way, way, more money than
I made in a single year at the time. So, I’d found a good deal. When I actually
bought it, my mortgage payment was just under a thousand dollars a month. Now,
young, dumb, college kid trying to figure out what he wants to do with this life.
No real career path. Starting on this real estate journey. I had an extra
thousand dollar a month payment overhead in my life. And that was kind of
nerve-wracking for me. But I was optimistic. So, this is the flyer that I
put together. It said no. But you know, rent to own, no bank qualifying and this
is the exciting part. It basically said, you could all you could pay $3,000 as a
downpayment and you could have a payment of $1,600 a month. Or you could put
$5,000 down and you could have a payment of 1,500 a month. Or you could put $7,000
down and you could have a payment of 1350 a month. Now, check it out dude. Zoom
in on this. I want you to see this. $7000. My payment was a thousand. So if someone
gave me seven grand up front, I was still going to have a $350 month cash flow. 1350 minus the thousand. So, I’ll put my cash flow here.
This is going to be three hundred and fifty dollars a month. Now, to a young, dumb,
college kid, $350 a month was enough to pay for
like a car payment or to actually pay down debt or to buy school books. On this
one, if they gave me five grand, I was going to make $500 a month. And I’m like,
“Freak yeah!” Or if they give me $3,000, I’m going to make $600 a month. Now, check it out.
The family that actually got this house, they gave me $3,000, they started paying
$1600 a month. I was making $600 a month cash flow. But let me ask you. Do you
really care if they put more or less down and if they give you that kind of
cash flow? I’m just telling you right now, you don’t care, it doesn’t matter. It all
amortizes out and works out to the same in over 24 months. One of them
will be slightly bigger than the other but the real big deal here is that
you’re getting paid a big chunk upfront non-refundable. They’re committing to
entirely take care of the house because that’s what a lease option is. Plus you
get a really juicy cash flow. This family didn’t buy this house but the next
family did. And on that house, I made over $100,000. In fact, my sold that made $130,000. And I’ve made a lot of good money in real
estate. This strategy is like seriously it’s the number one, it’s what
works for me, it’s what I love about it. Now, I want to share with you one last
thing that you need to know about what a lease option is. In real estate, when you
have a home, you’re going to rent it, you’ll have a rental contract. What we’re doing
is we’re adding a special second contract called option to purchase
agreement. And what they’re going to do is this is the standard rental and this is
the biggest air people will make in real estate. In that same document, they’ll add
the language for the lease option. In most states, that will actually qualify
as tenure of ownership in the home. And if they actually can’t buy the house,
they would actually have grounds to sue you or make a legal argument to get
their money back. What you need is a separate document and this document is
the option to purchase agreement. With the option to purchase agreement, what
you’re going to do is that’s where you’re going to say, “You’re going to give me this
amount down and this is the terms of that agreement here’s how long you have.”
You need the two agreements. I’ve pioneered it, most people don’t have
it. It has kept me and my clients legally safe. So you need to understand, the lease
option is awesome but there are wrong ways to do it and there are right ways
to do it. Payment calculators, what you should
charge and rent. How to find the deals, how to even buy
real estate on lease option without needing to put any money down. I share
all of that with people when I actually mentor with them. And I would tell you as
a final bonus here that if you’re going to get in the game of real estate, you need
a mentor. You need someone that will come into your life that will actually show
you the ropes and I’m all set up to do that for you. So, if you’d actually like
