Are you contemplating investing in property? But you don’t have enough money to do so. Right here 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 interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or they are frustrated with the folks renting the property.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking of using this technique perhaps your landlord would be happy to help you out! There are some variations that may be used depending on you and your seller. Do they desire the market price or are they just desperate to get out from the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The easiest way is to consider taking over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will need 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 create a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the house with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time period – 2 or 3 years. Rather than having the money sit down 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 ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you strike a genuine bad market the value of the house should have risen by then.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are a lot of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly around 60-70% of the value of the land, 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 revenue you make. Complete the deal with a second mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, paying down the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can observe the whole picture. It is better that seller and buyer may work together. In the event that they can’t wait for a sale, you may still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
