Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you don’t have enough money to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best guess is to locate a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that can be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to consider taking over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to presume 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 first 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 – two or 3 years. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they can be getting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually around 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they do not care what sort of money you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
