Are you thinking of investing in property? However you do not have enough cash to do this. Right here is a tip you can 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 guess is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps the owner would be happy to help you out! There are several variations that may be used depending on you and your seller. 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 repayments – 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 could 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 original mortgage and make a second 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 sit 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 term.
When the term draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually 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 income you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could 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 may work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
