Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you don’t have enough cash to do so. Here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better wager is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that can be used depending upon you and your vendor. 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 consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to presume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you could also 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 house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 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 rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you strike a genuine bad market the value of the property 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 plenty 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 know they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they do not 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, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
