Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough money to do this. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are some variations that could be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you could as well 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 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. Instead of having the money stay 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 ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are a lot 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 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 kind of money you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
