Are you thinking of investing in property? But you do not have enough money to do this. 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 all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to find a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps your landlord would be happy to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first 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 obligations while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and get 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 three years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they could 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 ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. 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 revenue you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
