Suppose an investor is bullish on SPY, which is currently trading at $277, and doesn`t think it will fall below $260 in the next two months. The investor could receive a premium of $0.72 (x 100 shares) by writing a put option on SPY with a strike price of $260. Options are developed through written agreements. As a general rule, only one option to appeal is granted. Sometimes a put option is also created by the same agreement, so that each party can force the other to close the sale and purchase of the property.

Depending on how it is written, the buyer does not apply a stamp duty on the option contract, but on the contract.

Therefore, options, if properly formulated, can be an advantageous way to engage in a real estate transaction without immediate tax debts. The main advantages of using a sale and call option agreement instead of a normal sales contract are the potential tax benefits. Using a sale and call option agreement, you can: While it is often more difficult to get a landowner to agree to a call option agreement, it is often more advantageous for the buyer, as he can again exclude the transaction before the exercise of the call option. If you exercise the call option on your own behalf or if the owner of the property exercises the option to sell, the security deposit would normally constitute the surety under the resulting contract while you are buying the property.
