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 property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to find a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that can be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the initial lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments while the property remains 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 frame – 2 or 3 years. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the property 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 a lot of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they do not care what sort of revenue 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 down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
