Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you do not have enough cash to do this. 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 guess is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are several 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 from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial lender to presume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well 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 – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money stay 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 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.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank could 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 property if you default, they don’t care what sort of money you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
