Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough money to do 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 every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best guess is to find a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that could be used depending on you and your owner. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest method is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to presume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you could as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and get 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. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they can be collecting 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 you could sell. Unless you hit a real bad market the value of the property should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly based on 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 revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer may work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
