Are you contemplating investing in property? However you do not have enough money to do this. In this article 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 willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to locate a land that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are some variations that may be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could 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 original mortgage and create a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or three years. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the house 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 a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually around 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they don’t care what sort of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
