Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However, you don’t have enough cash to do so. Here is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best gamble is to find a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are several variations that could be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and create a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or three years. Instead of 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 ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you hit 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 could still shy away there are lots 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 land, 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 money you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can 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.
