Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you don’t have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you may use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better wager is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are several variations that may be used depending on you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could also 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 make a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house 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 two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like 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. Complete the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
