Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you don’t have enough money to do this. 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 every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your best gamble is to find a property that the owner has great desire for offering it, whether because of moving, divorce, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this strategy perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that can be used depending on you and your seller. Do they want the market price or are they just eager to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest method is to take over their mortgage repayments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the original 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 payments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the original 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 three years. Rather than having the money sit down in a bank they could be getting a high interest over two or three years with the remainder due in full at the end of the investment term.
When the term ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you struck a real 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 shy away 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 land, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the estate if you default, they don’t care what sort of income you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could still foreclose on the property and sell it, paying off the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. If they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
