Are you thinking of investing in real estate? But you don’t have enough money 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 all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are some variations that can be used depending upon you and your seller. 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 consider taking 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 may 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 original mortgage and create 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 three years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they can 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 else you can sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are a lot of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare property investing. The mortgage is mostly 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 do not care what kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
