Are you thinking of investing in property? However, you do not have enough money to do this. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that may be used depending on you and your seller. Do they desire 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 need to be approved by the original lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also 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 frame – two or 3 years. Rather than having the money sit down 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 term.
When the term draws to a close you need to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the property 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 can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
