Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you do not have enough money to do 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 very best guess is to locate a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. 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 consider taking over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original lender to presume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well 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 make a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or three years. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are a lot of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually around 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they understand 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. If you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
