Are you thinking of investing in property? However, you do not have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are several variations that may be used depending on you and your owner. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe 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 presume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original 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 – two or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they could be getting a high interest over two or three years with the rest 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 could sell. Unless you struck an actual 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 may still be lacking confidence there are lots of financial lenders that would like 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 property 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 could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off 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 they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
