Are you contemplating investing in property? But you don’t have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you are able to 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 guess is to find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are a few 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 of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property remains 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 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 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 else you can sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are lots of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. 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 land if you default, they don’t care what kind of income you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
