Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you do not have enough cash to accomplish this. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate along.
To be fair, not every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to find a property that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this technique perhaps the owner would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that may be used depending on you and your owner. Do they desire the market price or are they just eager to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may 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 frame – 2 or 3 years. Rather than having the money sit in a bank they can be collecting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the rest due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term draws to a close you need to be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you strike an actual bad market the value of the property should have risen in that time.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely want to make a great investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are lots of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like property investing. The mortgage is mostly based on 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they know 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 second mortgage done with the seller. If 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 better that seller and buyer can work hand in hand. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their initial price with a little versatility on their part.
