Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you do not have enough cash to do this. Right here is a tip you can 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 very best wager is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be happy to assist you! There are a few variations that may be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you could as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original 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 frame – 2 or three years. Rather than having the money stay 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 draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly 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 land if you default, they do not care what kind of money you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. If you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
