Are you contemplating investing in property? However you do not have enough money to do so. In this article is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess is to find a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that can be used depending on you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest way 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 obligations while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and make a 2nd 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 ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you hit a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are plenty of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly based on 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 sort of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could eventually 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 may work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
