Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you do not have enough money to accomplish this. Right 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 better wager is to locate a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, divorce, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this strategy perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are a few variations that can be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they want the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you could 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 first 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 frame – two or three years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they could 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 can 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 be lacking confidence there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers prefare real estate. The mortgage is usually around 60-70% of the value of the property, 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 income you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is better 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 overall flexibility on their part.
