Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you do not have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that can be used depending on you and your owner. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the initial lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and get a second 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. Instead of having the money sit 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 term.
When the term draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you struck an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
Most 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 want to make a deal. Financiers prefare property investing. The mortgage is mostly around 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they do not care what kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd 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 see the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer may 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.
