Are you contemplating investing in property? But you do not have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to find a land that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this technique perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that could be used depending upon you and your owner. 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 take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial lender to assume 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 repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and create a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or three years. Instead of having the money sit down 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 term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly 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 estate if you default, they don’t care what sort of income you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
