how about you just give him/her what he/she wants? Maybe, he is just deploying some kind of plot just to make sure.

He just doesn't trust people that easily maybe.

Very Happy

The seller wants some proof that you have the money and/or pre-approval of a loan for the balance. If you do need a mortgage or loan against the property, make sure you tell the loan company that it would be for investment property, which may have different terms than owner-occupied. You don't want surprises after you get locked into a purchase contract.

It would be a good idea to have a realestate attorney look over any papers before you sign. Make sure that the seller will provide title insurance at closing.

I didn't think I needed an attorney when buying 5 yr land contract from someone I had purchased from before. But I did not realize until hiring an attorney while attempting to sell it after 12 yrs, that the represented easements were not properly recorded, and it was about to become landlocked. The buyers backed out, but at least an adjoining neighbor bought it for my purchase price. So saving hundreds on an attorney that may have originally flagged the easement problem, cost me thousands of dollars in lost profit down the road.

It dosent seem to me like you know what your are doing(real estate investing). Also I wouldnt be suprised if you have never purchased a home before, otherwise you would know the elements involved in any negotiation or intent to purchase and all the documents that are needed to proceed from meeting/phone call to the closing.

I would re-evaluate your ability, education, knowledge, and experience before you jump into something you know nothing about.

Real estate investing is very lucrative but if you dont know what you are doing you could end up in a financial black hole.

My final advise is for you to check your spelling when posting as there are many mistakes in your post. When forum members are reading your post, they might not fully understand what you might be trying to communicate as there are many errors.

Good luck and hope everything works out ok

Get him a letter form a lender  Reply with quote  

And provide him with a bank statement showing your deposit amount. Whatever you do be careful and don't cut corners. Keep your $$ in escrow behind a contract. This has all the earmarks of a scam.
