Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you do not have enough money to do so. Here is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that may be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial 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 first mortgage and create a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two 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 investment term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are lots 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 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 kind of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
