Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you do not 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 willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are several variations that could be used depending on you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original 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 repayments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and get a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or 3 years. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they could 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 need to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly 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 don’t care what sort of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe 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 initial price with a little versatility on their part.
