Conventional wisdom states that real estate investors should stick with neutral paint colors when rehabbing properties to rent out or sell at retail, but it may be time to revisit that time-honored axiom.

Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you don’t have enough money to do this. Here is a tip you can 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 better guess is to find a property that the owner has great desire for selling, 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 your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are some variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest 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 can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could 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 second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or three years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence 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 property if you default, they don’t care what sort of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second 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 observe the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
