Are you thinking of investing in property? But you do not have enough money to accomplish this. Here is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to locate a land that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps the owner would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that may be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to consider taking over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you could as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original 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 – two or three years. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are plenty of financial lenders that would like 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 know they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they don’t care what kind of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
