Are you thinking of investing in property? However, you do not have enough money to do this. Right here 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 willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best guess is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are several variations that may be used depending on you and your owner. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original lender to assume 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 stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original 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 frame – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they could be getting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is usually based on 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 do not care what sort of income you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the complete picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
