Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you do not have enough money to do this. Right 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 all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess is to find a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are some variations that could be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have 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 remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and get 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. Instead of 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 ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers prefare property investing. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the property, 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 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
