Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you don’t have enough cash to do so. Right 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 all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best wager is to find a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are some variations that can be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original lender to presume the mortgage. If you cannot 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 first 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 frame – 2 or three years. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they could 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 ends you should be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. 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 land if you default, they don’t care what kind of money you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
