Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you do not have enough money to accomplish this. In this article is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to find a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that could be used depending on you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to consider taking over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial lender to presume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also 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 – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit 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 ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you hit an actual 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 shy away 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 know they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they don’t care what sort of money you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
