Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you do not 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 every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best gamble is to find a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are several variations that can be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager 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 need to be approved by the original lender to presume 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 stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and get a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or three years. Rather than 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 ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are lots of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is usually 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 do not care what kind of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. If you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
