Are you thinking of investing in property? However you don’t have enough money to do this. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better wager is to find a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps your landlord would be happy to assist you! There are several 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 way is to consider taking over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first 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 payments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and create a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two or three years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they can 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 draws to a close you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are lots of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually around 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they do not care what sort of income you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
