Are you thinking of investing in real estate? But you don’t have enough cash to accomplish this. Here 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 interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best wager is to find a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first 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 obligations while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and make a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they can be getting 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 need to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the home 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 plenty of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is mostly based on 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 kind of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete 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.
