Are you contemplating investing in property? However, you don’t have enough money 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 every seller will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your better guess is to find a property that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the people renting the place.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and considering using this approach perhaps the owner would be happy to assist you! There are some variations that can be used depending on you and your vendor. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original 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 original 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 period – two or 3 years. Instead of having the money stay 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 investment term.
When the term ceases you should be able to refinance the cost, or perhaps you could sell. Unless you hit a genuine bad market the value of the home should have risen by then.
A lot of mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank could still be lacking confidence there are lots 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 property if you default, they don’t care what sort of money you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. If you default they can eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage with 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 could still give them their asking price with a little overall flexibility on their part.
