Are you contemplating investing in real estate? But you do not have enough money to do so. In this article is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best gamble is to find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are several variations that may be used depending on you and your owner. Do they desire 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 presume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you could also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property stays 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 3 years. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you strike a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
A lot of 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 like to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is mostly 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 land if you default, they don’t care what kind of money you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
