Are you thinking of investing in property? However, you do not have enough cash to accomplish this. In this article is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to find a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are some variations that could be used depending on you and your owner. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original 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 obligations while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the first 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 – two or three 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 investment term.
When the term ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers prefare property investing. The mortgage is usually around 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they do not care what sort of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
