Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you don’t have enough money to do 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 interested (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 of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are some variations that could be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and create 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 stay 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 term.
When the term ends you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could 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 want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly around 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they do not care what sort of income you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
