Are you contemplating investing in property? However you do not have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you may use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that could be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take 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 obligations while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and make 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 getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or you can sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare property investing. 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 land if you default, they do not care what kind of income you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the complete picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
