Are you thinking of investing in property? However, you don’t have enough cash to do this. Right here is a tip you may use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best gamble is to find a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps the owner would be happy to assist you! There are a few 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 from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial lender to assume 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 obligations while the property stays 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 frame – two or three years. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly around 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they do not care what kind of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole 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.
