Are you contemplating investing in property? However you do not have enough money to accomplish this. In this article is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps the owner would be happy to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending on 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 method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need 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 make 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 stay in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is mostly around 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 sort of income you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done 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 better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
