Are you contemplating investing in property? But you don’t have enough money to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that can be used depending on you and your seller. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to consider taking over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and get a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two or three years. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they can be getting a high interest over two or three 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 can sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are lots of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is usually based on 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 don’t care what kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
