Are you contemplating investing in property? However you do not have enough money to accomplish this. In this article is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps the owner would be happy to assist you! There are several variations that could be used depending on you and your owner. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t 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 second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two or three years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are lots of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly 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 don’t care what kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
