Are you thinking of investing in property? However you do not have enough cash to accomplish 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 interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are a few variations that could be used depending on you and your seller. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and make 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 two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you should be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need 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 real estate. 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 don’t care what kind of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case 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 complete 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 versatility on their part.
