Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you do not have enough cash to do 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 every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best wager is to find a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that could be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to presume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original 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 period – two or three years. Instead of having the money stay in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term draws to a close you should be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually based on 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 kind of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
