Are you thinking of investing in property? But you don’t have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers 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, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are several variations that may be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have 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 second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two or three 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 rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare property investing. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they don’t care what kind of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. If you default they could 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. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
