Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you may use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best guess is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that can be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they desire 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 need to be approved by the first lender to presume 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 remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and create a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they do not care what sort of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
