Are you contemplating investing in real estate? But you don’t have enough cash to do so. In this article is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better wager is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps the owner would be happy to help you out! There are several variations that could be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe 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 presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments 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 property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – two or three years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they can be getting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are lots of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they do not care what sort of income you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe 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 asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
