National rental rates increased by two percent in May 2018 over May 2017, the slowest rate of increase since 2010. However, reported RentCafé analysts, rents still rose in 79 percent of the country’s largest metro areas, were unchanged in 17 percent of those areas, and fell in only four percent of those areas.

Are you contemplating investing in property? But you don’t have enough money to do so. 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 every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that may 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 – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume 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 create a 2nd 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 stay in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you hit a real bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually 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 estate if you default, they do not care what sort of money you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
