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 property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best wager is to find a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are some variations that may be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to presume the mortgage. If you cannot 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 property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or three years. Instead of having the money sit down 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 need to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you hit 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 scared 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 property, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they don’t care what kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. If you default they could 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 together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
