Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you don’t have enough money to do 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 better wager is to find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate 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 original lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and get a second 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 stay in a bank they can be getting 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 ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. 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 kind of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. If you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
