Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you do not have enough money to do this. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best wager is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are some variations that may be used depending on you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to consider taking 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 also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments while the property remains 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 sit down in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over two or three 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 else you could sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like 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 property if you default, they don’t care what sort of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
