Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you do not have enough cash to do this. Right here is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to find a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are some variations that can be used depending on you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and get a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or 3 years. Rather than 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 investment term.
When the term ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you struck a real 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 scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually based on 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they don’t care what kind of money you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. If you default they can 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 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.
