Are you thinking of investing in property? However, you do not have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you may 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 guess is to find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that may be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they need 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 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 repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and create a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house 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 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you need to be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the home 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 a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually 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 land if you default, they do not care what sort of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. If you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. 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.
