Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough money to do this. Right here is a tip you may use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
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 interest in selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that may be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to consider taking over their mortgage repayments – 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 obligations 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 3 years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is mostly around 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 sort of money you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
