Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you don’t have enough money to accomplish this. In this article is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best gamble is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, 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 your landlord would be happy to assist you! There are several variations that can be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – 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 obligations while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and create a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you hit a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually based on 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they do not care what kind of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer may 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.
