Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However you do not have enough cash to do so. Here is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best wager is to find a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps your landlord would be happy to assist you! 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 – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original 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 repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first 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 3 years. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they can be getting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is usually around 60-70% of the value of the land, 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 created with the seller. In case you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
