Are you contemplating investing in property? But you don’t have enough money to do so. In this article is a tip you may use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to find a land that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps your landlord would be happy to assist you! There are a few variations that could 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 – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage repayments – 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 may 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 – two or three years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you hit a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are lots of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly around 60-70% of the value of the property, 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 could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good 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 asking price with a little versatility on their part.
