Are you contemplating investing in property? But you do not have enough money to do so. In this article is a tip you may use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best gamble is to find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are some variations that may be used depending on you and your seller. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and create a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down 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 investment term.
When the term ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the home 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 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 understand they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they do not care what kind of money you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
