Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However, you do not have enough cash to accomplish this. Here is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best gamble is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that could be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the initial lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and get a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they can be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are lots of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly around 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they do not care what sort of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
