Are you contemplating investing in property? But you do not have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you are able to 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 guess is to find a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are some variations that can be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you could as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments 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 – two or 3 years. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they can be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are lots of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly 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 do not care what kind of money 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, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. 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.
