Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you do not have enough money to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you can 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 better wager is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this technique 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 from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have 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 repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and create a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the house 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 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want 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 real estate. The mortgage is mostly around 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they do not care what sort of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is good 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.
