Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However, you do not have enough cash 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 along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better gamble is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are several variations that can be used depending on you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest 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 cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you could as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations 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 property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – two or three years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they can be getting a high interest over two or three years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or else you could sell. Unless you struck a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. 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 property if you default, they do not care what sort of revenue you make. Complete the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
