Are you contemplating investing in property? However you do not have enough cash to accomplish this. In this article is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess is to locate a property that the owner has great desire for selling, 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 approach perhaps your landlord would be happy to assist you! There are some variations that can be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – 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 may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and make a 2nd 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. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they can 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 need to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
Most 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 want to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually around 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they do not care what sort of income you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. If you default they can still 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 may work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
