Are you contemplating investing in real estate? But you don’t have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you may 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 selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps the owner would be happy to help you out! There are some variations that could be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could also 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 get 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 3 years. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they can be getting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are lots of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare 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 estate if you default, they don’t care what kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
