Are you thinking of investing in property? However, you don’t 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 willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to find a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that could be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – 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 could 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 make a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – two or three years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over two or three 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 perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are lots of financial lenders that would want 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 know they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they don’t care what kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can still 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 could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
