Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you don’t have enough cash to accomplish this. Here is a tip you may use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess is to locate a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that may be used depending upon you and your owner. 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 take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments 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 three years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they could be getting 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 ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is mostly 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 money you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
