Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you don’t have enough money to do this. In this article is a tip you can use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to find a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that could be used depending on you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial 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 original 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 3 years. Instead of having the money stay in a bank they can be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. 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 sort of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
