Are you contemplating investing in property? However, 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 interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are several variations that may be used depending on you and your vendor. 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 repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also 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 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. Instead of having the money stay in a bank they could be getting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you hit a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
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 prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually 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 sort of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
