How the private investors can help you with upside down mortgage?
01/2-13 at 10.35 by: Shaun Spellman

Do you have an upside down mortgage? If so, then in this type of mortgage you may not have anything to offer to the investors. In this situation, the investors may not help you as you have nothing on the property to offer them. When your mortgage is upside down, you may not have enough equity or value in the property. So, you may not have enough value in your property to convince the investors for investment.

What is upside down?

A mortgage is considered as upside down when the value of the property is lesser than the balance on your mortgage loan. Well, it can be a difficult process to sell your property, especially when there is upside down in your mortgage. In this situation, the property owner opts for short sale to pay off their mortgage. The lender may allow you to sell the property for less than the amount required to pay off the lender in short sale. If you’re upside down in mortgage, then you may not be able to refinance the property. In this case, the investors may not be interested to sell the mortgage.

How to know the property value?

You can estimate the equity in your property by calculating the difference between amount you owe on the property and the property's current value. Generally, the current value of the property is the amount that the buyer can pay according to the market value. The real estate agents analyze the current market value by drawing an average of the recent sale prices of comparable properties in your area. Before investment, the investors can be interested to know the current value of the property.

What are reasons of being upside down in mortgage?

The major reason for being upside down is the incessant drop in the property values. When the original lender overestimates the value of the property or offers a loan more than the value of the property, this is another reason for being upside down in mortgage. In some cases property value may drop beyond the initial loan balance. Therefore, it can be complicated in certain cases.

Can the investors help to be beneficial in this case?

You can increase the property value by repairing your property or improvising your home. It’s easier to increase the value of the property by improving and repairing your home. Remember, you may be upside down in mortgage, unless the valuation of the home exceeds the loan balance on the property along with the cost of the repairs or improvement. Therefore, you need to provide evidence to the private investor that the improvement or repair can reverse the upside down status. If the private investors find the deal to be rewarding in future, then they may agree to invest on the property. So, the investors can help you with an upside down mortgage.

Therefore, the investors can help you with upside down mortgage only under certain circumstances. Make sure you start repairing your property to find private investors for your property.
