Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you don’t have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best guess is to find a land that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the initial 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 obligations while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original 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 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 term.
When the term ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually 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 land if you default, they do not care what kind of money you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case 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. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
