Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you don’t have enough cash to do so. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to assume 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 first mortgage and make a second 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. Rather than having the money stay in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are lots of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually 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 land if you default, they don’t care what kind of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
