Are you contemplating investing in property? But you don’t have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you are able to 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 wager is to find a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that could be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well 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 make a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down 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 investment term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually 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 estate if you default, they do not care what kind of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can still 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 hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
