Buying Houses “Subject To” the Existing Mortgage Part 2

Today I have the second part of this 2 part article on buying houses subject to the existing mortgage by Michael Quarles from Buy Sell Fix Flip.  In part 2 of this post on the creative financing technique “Subject To”, Michael lays out the rest of his buying strategy.

Seller: “Yes that is wonderful.”
