Are you contemplating investing in property? But you do not have enough cash to do this. In this article 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 willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that can be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage payments – 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 could as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and get a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare property investing. The mortgage is usually 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 estate if you default, they do not care what kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they can still 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 can still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
