Looking to work with qualified customers on a long-term rental / lease

Not sure if this is the right place for this posting. I recently sold my business and have been a fan, customer and investor of Tesla for quite a while now. I know banks and leasing companies can be pretty brutal to work with if you don't meet all of their criteria. Regulations have made this process even more painful. Case in point, I was recently introduced to a just-graduated surgeon who makes $200k+ a year with medical school loans and some credit card debt who couldn't get approved for a loan or a lease. His wife is very excited to get a new Tesla model X and it was super frustrating for him not to have any options.

If you find yourself in a similar situation, I'm here as an alternative to help you get into a new or inventory Tesla. I do assess your credit and financial situation, but I won't create a formal credit inquiry.

I will help to buy your Tesla and then rent / lease it back to you until the end of 2019. That's only 27 months versus Tesla's minimum 36 months. You can rent it as long as you'd like month-to-month after that too. You can also buy it outright from me anytime starting in January 2018. If you decided to purchase it, you tap the $7,500 federal tax credit in the form of a buyout price reduction of $7,500. How do I benefit: I look for some combination of the tax credits, depreciation and rental income to offset the loss in value that will happen over the rental term. Hopefully, it works out well for everyone.

If I can help some of you experience that Tesla smile sooner than later and not lose my shirt in the process, I'm pumped.
