Are you thinking of investing in property? But you do not have enough cash to do so. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best wager is to find a land that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that can be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property stays in the seller’s name.
You take over the original mortgage and make a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two 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 rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you hit a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a good investment. While your local bank may still be scared there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is mostly 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 sort of money you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If 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 hand in hand. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
