Are you contemplating investing in real estate? But you do not have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you may 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 find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are several variations that could be used depending on you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to presume 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 payments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and create 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 stay in a bank they could be collecting 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 else you could sell. Unless you strike a genuine bad market the value of the property 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 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 land, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they don’t care what kind of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
