Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess is to find a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are some variations that can be used depending on you and your owner. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage repayments – 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 repayments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and make a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or three years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they could be getting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term draws to a close you should be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you hit a real bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. 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 income you make. Conclude 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 down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
