Are you thinking of investing in property? However you do not have enough cash to do this. In this article is a tip you may use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager 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 people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first 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 payments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and get a second 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. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they can be collecting 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 ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are lots of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually 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 property if you default, they don’t care what sort of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
