Are you thinking of investing in real estate? But you don’t have enough money to do this. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better 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 tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that could be used depending on you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the initial 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 remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first 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 frame – 2 or three years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over two or three years with the rest 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 could sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they understand 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 done with the seller. In case you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
