Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you do not have enough cash to do this. Here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better wager is to find a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way 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 payments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and make a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or three years. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you strike a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually 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 land if you default, they do not care what sort of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer may 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.
