Are you thinking of investing in property? But you don’t have enough money to do so. In this article is a tip you are able to 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 best gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are some variations that may be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and create a 2nd 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. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they can 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 draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you strike a genuine bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are plenty of financial lenders that would like 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 estate if you default, they don’t care what kind of money you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
