Has anyone ever used this approach or any bonds at all?

Since zero coupon bonds typically sell at a huge discount from the face value how would that be used in buying real estate???

A book that I've read mentioned something to the effect of offering the zero bond to a seller as part of a down payment or as collateral aginst the seller carrying holding financing.

Once again, zero coupon bonds (commonly called "zeros) sell at a huge discount from their face value because interest in only payable when you cash in the bond after it matures.

For instance a $1,000 face value zero that yields 6.15% at maturity in 20 years sells for around 290 bucks right now and is worth about 290 until the 20 years passes.

If you're selling a house for say $100,000 you need to ask yourself how excited you would be if someone offered you a handful of zeros worth $100,000 20 years from now but about 29K right now???

No sale from me.

James, thanks for the response. I have the basic understanding of the "zero" instrument. Would the possibility exsist for someone to accept a zero five years from maturity. Quite frankly I would not wait twenty years myself.

I have have recently learned that an associate of mine actually purchased some zeros years ago to partially fund his grandchilds college tuition.
