Link Options is a new real estate strategy that evolved from years of experience with old strategies. It was created and perfected to create MASSIVE INCOME by utilizing ALL THOSE Real Estate leads with little or no equity, and gives the millions of Americans who are being told that they are “Un-Lendable” by the banks, a chance to become homeowners!
We’ve experienced such tremendous and immediate success closing Link Options over the past 18 months that investors nationwide have been begging us to teach them our strategy and business model. In almost every area of the United States, the old investing strategies just aren’t working like they used to. The investors who’ve managed not to bite the dust all together are working three times as hard to make half the profit they did once before. Don’t feel bad if you’ve been investing and your profits have disappeared. You’re not alone!
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to meet with everyone individually to teach them the business. Besides that, we’re NOT coaches or mentors…we’re real estate business owners actively running a full-time business. But because of the overwhelming amount of inquiries and our desire to help, we finally decided to take EVERYTHING WE DO ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS, and put it on Video, Slide Shows, Audio Recordings, and Down-loadable Documents for you to use in your own market. After months of recording and documenting, we have now what so many people have been begging for…a resource that is truly like being a hands-on apprentice for our business! Take it, Use it, Profit with it!
BuyBaltimoreProperties.com is a private for-profit Real Estate Investing Company operating in Baltimore, Maryland and the surrounding areas.
Noun: syn - er - gy (sin' er gee)
The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.
Cooperative interaction among groups, especially among the acquired subsidiaries or merged parts of a corporation, that creates an enhanced combined effect.
Through streamlined focus, effective systems, and leveraging individual talents combined with the vast housing needs of Maryland's consistent revitalization and the fast approaching BRAC and Biotech Research Center developments, a tremendous opportunity to grow exponentially has become a reality. And did you know that the NSA has a 20+ year expansion plan that will make BRAC look like nothing?
And the Synergy Doesn't Stop There!
Through every closed transaction, all directly involved reap far more benefit than what could have been accomplised, if anything, separately. Whether they are distressed sellers, credit/finance-challenged buyers, realtors, attorneys, contractors, private lenders, credit repair specialists, mortgage companies, banks or other real estate investors, we have become experts in creating
"Win-Win to the Nth Degree" Solutions
The indirect benefits of our business are also synergistic. Problem properties are rehabbed, increasing not only its own value, but that of the surrounding community. Neighbors of our rehabbed properties have become some of our biggest advocates!
Yes, of course, we are "For-Profit" and our companies' high ethical standards insist that we also operate to create wealth opportunities for those we work with and service. We simply won't do transactions that would compromise our integrity nor will we tolerate anything less from our business associates.
Everyone understands a price a can't be placed on Peace of Mind. How much is a second chance worth to someone who has experienced hardship? Have you ever longed for a "Do-Over" or to "Press the Reset Button" on the predicament at hand? We've all made what we thought were good decisions at the time but only later discovered that it was in fact a mis-step. How many times have you wished you could just turn back the clock and decide things differently?
Well, we can't literally turn back the clock for our clients, but we have time and time again provided services that relieved a tremendous burden from their shoulders so they could move on to better things.
Please take the time to review our Testimonials. We are confident you will see

Baltimore Maryland Real Estate Investing at its Creative Best
Cash tends to be King in all industries. Some of the best deals can be had if you have access to fast cash. We owe a tremendous thanks to our Private Lenders who provide our company with practically Unlimited Private Funds (for the right deal of course),enabling us to Close Quickly when Sellers needs Fast Cash. No waiting for long applications and approvals...the only thing that holds us back are pesky title issues. Yet we are proud to say that there hasn't been one single title issue that we haven't been able to clear! Boy do we have some stories to share in that area!
Our purchase transactions are either straight up CASH or
Cash after successful Short Sale Negotiation and Approval
Out of all the above, we probably Wholesale our deals to other Investors/Rehabbers/Landlords the most. Some of our best friends are repeat, long-term buyers. The best business is repeat business for sure!
Next to that we do a lot of Cash Purchases where we'll Renovate-and-Resell or Renovate-and-Hold. Rehabbing can be a great challenge, but we always find it rewarding, especially when we're putting our Before & After photos together.
On the Selling side, we love Discount Retailing our Quality Renovations, usually accomplishing the highest sale in the neighborhood ironically. But selling has been tough for everyone these days, even those already providing Below-Market Affordable Housing. So we had to get creative yet again so we expanded our Rent-to-Sell/Rent-to-Own strategies and developed our Link Options Program for Sellers.
This program has exploded tremendously lately and we use this strategy for our own properties as well as for other Sellers who need more for their property than we can pay for cash. Although "Rent-to-Own" has grown in popularity recently (and we predict it will continue to do so while credit is tight and the banks fight to keep their heads above water), we've been successfully completing these transactions for years. Experience is key to these transactions as every single deal is different. There's probably a half a dozen ways to put a deal like this together and we stand by our way as being the Best Way with strong, Maryland Attorney Approved contracts protecting both the Seller and the Tenant/Buyer.
We have the below ACTIVE rent-to-own Tenant/Buyers seeking owners who can work with them:
~ Rent-To-Own ~
21207, 21239, Randallstown, NW Baltimore
Aberdeen, Havre de Grace, Edgewood, Abingdon, Joppa, near work (Aberdeen Proving Grounds)
21206, 21117, 21093, 21203, NE Baltimore, Cockeysville, Owings Mills, Timonium
Towson, Lutherville, White Marsh, Rosedale, Cockeysville, Hunt Valley
Open, Washington Village, Johns Hopkins
Middle River, Downtown, Pasadena, Fullerton, White Marsh
Have an expired or about-to-expire listing that a Rent-To-Sell arrangement may work for your client?
Receive half of first month's rent now and the remainder of your full commission when our rent-to-own Tenant/Buyer purchases the home!
Or perhaps there's a deal that's fallen through because the Buyer didn't ultimately qualify (they had to be pretty close, right?) or perhaps the property didn't appraise. Even if two agents are involved, we can help set up a Rent-To-Sell / Rent-To-Own transaction.
You may be thinking, why don't I just do this myself? And you should...IF you have experience and know the laws governing such transactions. If that's the case you would be providing a great service for your client and not losing a commission.
However, we strongly encourage you NOT to set it up using a Purchase & Sale Contract with a Delayed Closing which is the standard/most common way we see agents setting up these deals. If you have to ask "Why?" to this statement, then why not involve a seasoned, reputable company who is experienced with these transactions and who is NOT going to cut out your commission one bit?
Thinking about paying big bucks for the latest Guru's training? Chances are we've "Been There Done That" so drop us a line and ask us about our experience. There's definitely those we would HIGHLY recommend investing your time and money in and absolutely those we would encourage you to stay away from.
