Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough money to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best wager is to find a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are several variations that could be used depending on you and your seller. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to consider taking over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial 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 property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or three years. Instead of having the money stay 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 investment term.
When the term draws to a close you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are lots of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually 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 property if you default, they do not care what kind of money you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. 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.
