Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough cash to do this. In this article 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 all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess is to locate a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are some variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. 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 obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and get a second 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 in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you hit a real bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a good 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 property, 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 money you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire 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 initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
