Are you thinking of investing in real estate? But you do not have enough cash to do this. Here is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best gamble is to find a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the initial 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 payments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the first 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 frame – two or three years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they can be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term draws to a close you should be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you hit a real bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are lots of financial lenders that would want 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 understand they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they do not care what kind of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
