Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you do not have enough cash to accomplish this. Here 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 interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best gamble is to find a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about 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 owner. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may 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 original mortgage and create 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. Instead of having the money stay in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually based on 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they don’t care what sort of income you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
