Are you contemplating investing in property? However you don’t have enough money to do this. Right here is a tip you can 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 find a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that can be used depending on you and your seller. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot 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 original mortgage and create a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly 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 estate if you default, they don’t care what kind of money you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
