Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you do not have enough money to do so. Right here is a tip you are able to 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 best gamble is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that can be used depending upon you and your vendor. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – 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 may also 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 get 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 getting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you should be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are a lot 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 land, 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 money you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
