Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you don’t have enough money to accomplish this. 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 all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best guess is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this technique perhaps the owner would be happy to help you out! There are some 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 – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage repayments – 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 repayments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and make a 2nd 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. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they can be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ceases you need to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you hit a real bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like 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 revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
