Are you contemplating investing in property? However you don’t have enough money to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best wager is to find a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that could be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original 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 repayments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and get a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or three years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they can be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are plenty of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly around 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 kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. If you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is good 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 overall flexibility on their part.
