Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you do not have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better wager is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume 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 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. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term draws to a close you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are plenty of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. 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 property if you default, they do not care what sort of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete 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 initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
