Are you thinking of investing in property? However, you do not have enough money to accomplish this. In this article is a tip you can use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best gamble is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that could be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the initial lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t 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 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 – 2 or three years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly 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 land if you default, they don’t care what kind of income you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
