Back in 2010, a long-time developer asked if I could raise $3 million to acquire a foreclosed subdivision worth about $15 million. At the time, I had been helping California investors find foreclosures nationwide. Pooling funds to buy a foreclosed subdivision was something completely new to my network and to me!

Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However, you do not have enough cash to do this. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (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, divorce, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be glad to assist you! There are some variations that may be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the original 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 create a second 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 sit down in a bank they could 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 ends you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you can sell. Unless you hit an actual bad market the value of the house should have risen in that time.
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 wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare 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 estate if you default, they don’t care what sort of money you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
