We’ve all heard about the hazards and inconveniences associated with environmental factors like snow, water, and wind, but you might not be quite so familiar with the perils of tumbleweeds. These spiky balls of dried plant material break off in strong winds and blow around, dispersing seeds. Unfortunately for residents of Victorville, California, tumbleweeds sometimes end up piling up and nearly burying houses as well.
“It’s a nightmare,” said one Victorville broker, Bryan Bagw…

Are you thinking of investing in property? But you do not have enough money to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best guess is to locate a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this technique perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are some variations that may 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 – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original lender to presume 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 stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and create a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two or 3 years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they can be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is mostly 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 income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
