Are you thinking of investing in real estate? But you do not have enough cash to do this. Right here is a tip you may 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 of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well 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 make 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 stay in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over two or three 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 else you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they do not care what kind of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
