Are you contemplating investing in property? However you do not have enough cash to do so. In this article is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to find a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that can be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original 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 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 frame – 2 or three years. Instead of having the money stay in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder 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 else you can sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare property investing. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they don’t care what sort of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good 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.
