Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you do not have enough money to do this. Here is a tip you can use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to find a land that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this strategy perhaps the owner would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that could be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager 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 original mortgage and get a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit 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 ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you hit a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. 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 land if you default, they don’t care what kind of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd 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 may work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
