Are you contemplating investing in property? However you don’t have enough cash to do so. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to locate a land 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 approach perhaps the owner would be happy to assist you! There are a few variations that can be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make obligations while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and get a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or three years. Instead of having the money sit down 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 ceases you need to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the house 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 lots of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually based on 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 revenue you make. Conclude the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. If you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
