Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough cash to do this. Here is a tip you can 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 very 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 frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are several variations that could be used depending on you and your vendor. 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 obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original lender to presume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations while the property stays 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 period – 2 or 3 years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they could be getting 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 ought to 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.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are plenty 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 land, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the estate 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 eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
