Are you thinking of investing in property? But you do not have enough money to accomplish this. Here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to find a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are some variations that may be used depending upon 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 way is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also 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 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 three years. Rather than having the money sit 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 ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you hit 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 may still be scared there are lots of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare property investing. The mortgage is usually based on 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they do not care what kind of money you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
