Are you contemplating investing in real estate? But you do not have enough money to do so. In this article is a tip you can use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this technique perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that may be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations while the property remains 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 frame – two or three years. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they could be getting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly around 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 do not care what kind of income you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. If you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
