Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you do not have enough cash to do so. In this article is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this technique perhaps the owner would be happy to assist you! There are a few variations that may be used depending on you and your seller. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t 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 first mortgage and create a second 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 collecting a high interest over two or three years with the rest 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 could sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are lots of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they know 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 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case 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 entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
