Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough money to do this. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in selling, 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 strategy perhaps your landlord would be happy to assist you! There are some variations that can be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they want 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 payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original 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 payments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and create a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two or 3 years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you struck an actual 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 a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually based on 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they do not care what sort of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
