Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you do not have enough money to do so. 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 every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best guess is to find a property that the owner has great desire for selling, 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 happy to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out of 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 initial lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also 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 make 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 could be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish 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 know they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they don’t care what sort of income you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
