Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this technique perhaps your landlord would be happy to assist you! There are some variations that may be used depending on you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need 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 obligations while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and create 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 3 years. Rather than having the money sit 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 term.
When the term ends you should be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you strike a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is usually based on 60-70% of the value of the land, 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 kind of income you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole 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 initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
