Sell your Home Fast - Helping a Buyer Buy your Home

By: Cashhomebuyers.com

In the past, a family saw your house, it was just right for them, and you had a sale. Today the decisions are more based on financing options available to them rather than the considerations of neighborhood, style, or space.

Real estate brokers agree that the most important questions are,”How much will this property cost me per month?” and, “What kind of financing can I qualify for?”

There are many ways to finance the purchase of a new property. The first is to pay cash, but most people can’t afford to do this. The most common route people chose to purchase a home is by making a down payment to the broker or seller, followed by monthly mortgage payments of principal, interest, taxes, and property insurance.

The buyer also can agree to pay the remaining mortgage debt on your current mortgage loan. This would cause the closing costs to be considerably lower, the interest rate on the old mortgage might be lower than the current rates for the new mortgage, and the transaction can be closed quicker.

The buyers are usually required to place a deposit of five to ten percent of the price of the price as earnest money. The home is then taken off the market while financing can be arranged. Of course this deposit will be lost if the seller isn’t able to carry out the contract.

Mortgage is basically a loan for purchasing a piece of property. A lender provides cash to buy a home, at a price. The mortgagor signs a legal document which obligates them to repay the mortgagee in regular installment for a multiple of years, racking up money on interest.

Mortgages are commonly provided by savings banks, commercial banks, savings-and-loan associations, mortgage bankers, insurance companies, and occasionally home sellers.

If you plan on selling your home to a family member or friend, make sure you make everything on a firm business basis, and leave nothing to verbal agreement. Keeping strong documentation not only prevents problems, it saves you in the event of a problem.

Mortgage sources may offer a conventional mortgage loan without any guarantee, or one insured by HUD or guaranteed by the Veterans Administration.

A buyer who is able to qualify for a conventional mortgage, but isn’t able to make the large down payment might be able to qualify using HUD-insured financing. This makes it possible for the borrower to make a smaller down payment, and often lower monthly payments. HUD and FHA have guaranteed the mortgage for thousands of people. HUD insurance means that a down payment required might be as low as five percent, or in Veterans Administration guarantee there might be no down payment whatsoever.

If you want to trade your home for an older home that needs some fixing up, you might be able to purchase and renovate your second home by obtaining a HUD-inspired mortgage loan in an amount that includes the necessary repairs. HUD’s commitment is based upon the value of the home after improvements are made.

The most popular types of creative financing are: the wrap-around, the balloon, the negative amortize, the long-term closer, the shared-appreciator, the equity participator, and the graduated payment, long-term adjustable. Real estate experts have estimated at least 100 new kinds of mortgages are designed for your specific needs in mind every day.
