Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you don’t have enough money to do so. Here 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 interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best wager is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in offering it, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this approach perhaps the owner would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that could be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to consider taking over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the initial lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make payments 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 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 rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ends you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you strike an actual 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 could still be scared there are lots of financial lenders that would like to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the property, so as long as they know they get their money back in the value of the property if you default, they do not care what sort of income you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage created 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 observe the whole picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you can still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
