Historically, the occurrence of wildfires has dampened home-value appreciation in the immediate area of the fire. This holds true even in neighborhoods with no evacuations or property damage. However, the 2018 wildfire season appears to be a different case entirely.

Are you thinking of investing in real estate? However, you don’t have enough money to do this. In this article is a tip you may use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best guess is to find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because they are moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and considering using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to assist you! There are several variations that can be used depending upon you and your owner. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the initial lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and make a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – two or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they could be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you need to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you strike a real bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be scared there are a lot of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is usually 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 money you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage created with the seller. In case you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer can work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
