Which fee is better: an assignment or finder's fee ? You get an assignment fee when you find the buyer during the 30 - 90 day closing window and you already know the seller before the buyer right ? And the finder's fee is when you speak with the investor before you find them the seller, correct ? I am asking all these questions because I am trying to lock up a deal by the end of the week. How much does the investor pay for the assignment fee, how do you determine the number ? How do you collect your money, do they pay you cash upfront or do you get it from the bank?
