Are you contemplating investing in property? However you don’t have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are some 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 of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have 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 repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and get a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or 3 years. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they can be getting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you hit a genuine bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly 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 don’t care what sort of income you make. Conclude 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 see the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
