Are you contemplating investing in property? But you do not have enough cash to do so. Right 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 locate a land that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are a few 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 – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage repayments – 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 could 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 original mortgage and make a 2nd 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. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they can 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 draws to a close you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you strike 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 may still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare 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 land if you default, they don’t care what kind of money you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
