Are you contemplating investing in property? But 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 all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better wager is to find a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you could also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original 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 frame – 2 or three years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you ought to 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 by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are lots of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. 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 estate if you default, they don’t care what sort of money you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
