Are you contemplating investing in property? But you do not have enough money to accomplish this. 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 guess is to find a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be happy to assist you! There are some variations that may be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the first 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 period – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they could be getting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder 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 can sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are lots of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly around 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they do not care what sort of income you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. In case 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 entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
