Are you contemplating investing in real estate? But you do not have enough money to do this. Right here is a tip you are able to use as long as the property seller is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not all sellers will be interested (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to locate a land that the owner has great desire for selling, whether because they are moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you are currently renting and thinking about using this technique perhaps the owner would be glad to help you out! There are some variations that could be used depending upon you and your seller. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – maybe facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage obligations – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to presume the mortgage. If you can’t get approved for an assumable mortgage you may as well 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 get a second mortgage on the remaining cost of the property 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 ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or you could sell. Unless you hit a real bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely want to make a good investment. While your local bank could still shy away there are plenty of financial lenders that would want to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is mostly based on 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 do not care what kind of money you make. Conclude 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 down the existing mortgage with the proceeds.
Now you can observe the entire 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.
