Are you thinking of investing in property? However you don’t have enough money to accomplish this. In this article is a tip you are able to use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that could be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage payments – 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 could also 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 make a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – two or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit down in a bank they can 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 draws to a close you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
A lot of 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 wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. 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 land if you default, they don’t care what sort of revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
