Are you thinking of investing in property? However, you do not have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you are able to 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 land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are several variations that could be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – 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 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 first mortgage and make 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 3 years. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. 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 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. 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.
