Are you thinking of investing in property? But you do not 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 all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to find a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration 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 some variations that may be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the initial 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 obligations while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and make a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you should be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually around 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 kind of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
