Financing options for real estate buying

Financing options for real estate buying Buying a home is probably the biggest purchase (and maybe the biggest dream as well) a common man makes in his life. Having your own home is seen as a milestone in anybody\\\\'s life. However it is not so easy for most of the middle class families and it may cost a good percentage of their lifetime savings. Same is the case with real estate investors, many times they see a piece of property that comes as an extremely good investment opportunity but few investors have that much cash in hand all the time. The bottom line is that you need some modes of finance, if you are going to buy some residential or commercial property. Following are some commonly used finance options. Loans from Housing Finance Institutions/commercial Banks (Mortgage loans) When you are in need of buying a property and not having funds for that, you will go for the loans. In this case the lender will be an investor, who is giving out this loan as an investment (known as ownership investment). These investors need to have some security that they will get returns on investment or at least the amount they are investing. When you pledge your home as a security to your lender, it is called a mortgage. The lender now has a claim on the property, and in case you are not able to pay back in future, he has the option to sell the property in auction (foreclosures). Mortgage is the most common source of finance for most real estate buyers and investors. You can chose between fixed rate mortgage and variable rate mortgage, there\\\\'s a third type as well that combines the advantages of both fixed and variable rate mortgages. Government Sponsored Housing Schemes: Governments, in order to facilitate their citizens, offer housing schemes for middle or lower class people. Also there are some organizations or local government bodies offering housing finance. These loans are not valid for investment purposes, but if you are looking to purchase a home for your own use, you must look into these schemes. If you are eligible for such loans, the rates will be much lower than commercial loans. These schemes vary from state to state or country-to-country. Borrowing from Family or your credit cards: Borrowing from your family or friends is another good option. Unlike commercial lenders, they will be much more cooperative (depending on your relations). In most cases you don’t have to pledge your property or some other assets as a security. On a side note, for lenders lending to their friends or families, there\\\\'s nothing wrong in making a written agreement. Credit cards are not a good long-term financing option, but it can be helpful when you need relatively small amount for down payment or monthly installments.
