Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you do not have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you can 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 better gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps the owner would be happy to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to consider taking 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 obligations while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original 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 frame – two or three years. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you hit a real bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly around 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they do not care what sort of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. If you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer may 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 versatility on their part.
