Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough cash to do so. In this article is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to locate a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that could be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – 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 may as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original 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 – 2 or 3 years. Rather than having the money sit 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 draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you strike a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually around 60-70% of the value of the land, 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 revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
