Are you contemplating investing in property? However you don’t have enough cash to accomplish this. In this article is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to locate a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that could be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original 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 get 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 stay in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you should be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you strike a genuine bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are lots of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually around 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 don’t care what sort of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
