Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you don’t 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 every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess 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 of using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that may be used depending on you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations 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 3 years. Instead of having the money stay 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 you can sell. Unless you hit a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
Most 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 want to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is usually 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. Complete 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 down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
