# Different Real Estate Investing methods
* Bird-Dogging - “Bird dogs” get paid a referral fee for finding good deals for other investors.
* Hard money lenders - These are often used to finance projects that are unconventional, great deals, or where money is needed quickly. Typically hard money lenders will lend 50-70% of the value of the property regardless of the sales price (unlike banks). They will typically close loans in 2–7 days.
* Land trust - Land Trusts have traditionally been used as a non-profit entity to own property.
* Lease option - This is made up of two parts: A lease, or rental agreement, and an option. They may be written together as one contract or as two.
* Options - An option is defined as the right to buy a property for a specified price (strike price) during a specified period of time.
* Paper/notes/mortgage investing - This also is less of a “creative real estate investing” technique as typically described. Mortgages are often sold by lenders to other lending institutions.
* Sandwich lease - A sandwich lease is a lease created by a tenant wishing to exit his/her unit as a tenant while not having a “exit option” written into their lease by the landlord.
* Seller finance or “subject to” - The seller can act as a bank and rather than receiving all or a portion of their equity at close, they can “lend” it to the buyer and receive a regular payment as agreed.
* Short sale or pre-foreclosure - When a property owner fails to make their mortgage payments for a number of months they are in default. The first step of the foreclosure process (which typically takes a number of months) that the lender will take is to file the notice of default. This is a public document that is recorded.
* Tax liens - Each state creates the system and rules for the lien or deed process so careful research is necessary. In general, property owners are notified regarding the amount of taxes owed and are given a period of time to pay.
* Wholesaling - Wholesalers typically make smaller profits but buy and sell properties in large quantities. They may buy 50 homes at a time from a bank and then sell them for a small markup to move them quickly and do it again.
