Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However, you do not have enough cash to do so. Here 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 interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this technique perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that could be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first 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 get a second 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 stay in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 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 else you can sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are lots 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 property, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they don’t care what sort of money you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
