Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you do not have enough money to accomplish this. In this article is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller 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 frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this technique perhaps the owner would be happy to assist you! There are some variations that can be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps 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 assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments 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 frame – two or three years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they can 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 ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you strike a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly 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 do not care what kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
