Are you contemplating investing in property? But you do not have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to find a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that could be used depending on you and your seller. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method 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 cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you could as well 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 make 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. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they could be getting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you hit a real bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are a lot 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 land, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they don’t care what kind of money you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
