10 Exit Strategies to Buy 10 Homes a Week

In my conversation with Rich Lennon, who is a real estate investor that is focused on buy-and-hold, but is also active in a wide range of other investment strategies, he explains how educating himself on all possible exit strategies allows him to purchase 1 property per week. Ultimately, by the end of the year, his goal is to use the strategies to increase his weekly deal acquisitions from 1 to 10.

Rich’s Best Ever advice is to educate yourself on all the possible and different exit strategies. When he first started purchasing homes, he believed there were only a handful of exit strategies. However, as he become more involved in the real estate business, he was able to educate himself on other potential exit strategies. As a result, he discovered 10 different exit strategies that can be applied to any give home. In no particular order, here is a list of exit strategies Rich uses:

  1. Flip
    • Acquire the property
    • Perform rehabs
    • Sell on the retail market
  2. Rent
    • Acquire the property
    • Rent to a tenant for a specified period of time
  3. Seller Financing
    • Acquire the property,
    • “Sell” on the retail market,
    • “Finance” the property for the buyer and essentially become the bank
  4. Notes (Top 7 Answers About Real Estate Notes)
    • Create notes,
    • Sell your notes on the secondary market with properties
  5. Rent-to-own
    • Same as “Rent”, however, provide the tenant with an option-to-buy
  6. Wholesale
    • Get the property under contract,
    • “Sell” the contract to a qualified buyer in one of multiple ways
  7. Create mortgage wraps (Wikipedia – Wraparound Mortgage)
    • Form of seller-financing
  8. Joint Venture (Nuts and Bolts of Real Estate Joint Venture Partnerships)
    • Acquire the property
    • Fund the deal with a “partner”
  9. Entities (Land Trust Traps for the Unwary Investors – Part 1, Part 2)
    • Rich purchases all of his properties in land trusts
  10. Tax Advantages
