What is Simultaneous
Itís a seller-financing technique whereby the property seller offers
to create a private mortgage note with the buyer and
then records the note and turns around and sells it to a note investor
within days of the real estate
In a conventional Real
Estate sale, closing day is the day when the
documents are executed and/or recorded, and the real
estate sale (and loan) is completed.
In a Simultaneous
Closing transaction, there is a second closing in
which the seller financed note is sold to a note
This second closing
could take place within a few days after the Real Estate
Seller financing can
be of benefit to property sellers
Some property sellers
are willing to offer seller financing to generate
more interest in the property. They know that there
are people out there that donít qualify for
conventional mortgages, and the sellers are willing
to offer their own financing and act as a
bank to the buyers.
They know that
offering seller financing will bring in more
interested buyers and that as a result they will be
able to sell properties quicker and more profitably.
Why donít all property
sellers offer seller financing?
First, the seller has
to be willing to receive monthly payments instead of
a lump sum. If the seller is in search of monthly
cash flow, this is a great long-term investment, but
not everybody is looking for this.
Then, there is the
risk of default. Buyers could stop making monthly
payments and the seller may have to foreclose. This
will cause the seller to spend time and money
dealing with attorneys, eviction issues, etc. This
is a bigger headache than some people want to deal
Some sellers donít
have enough equity in the property to be able to
offer this, while others are not aware that they can
offer seller financing even if they donít own the
property outright and are still making mortgage
payments to the bank.
goes a step further
You already learned in
the above paragraph that seller financing by itself
has a downside. Here is where a Simultaneous Closing
can be of great benefit.
By selling the seller
financed note for cash shortly after closing, there is no
need to receive monthly payments over a long period
And if the buyer later
defaults in his payments, itís not the sellerís
problem anymore. The seller got his money and is out
of the picture.
The third point is a
little more difficult to make because we havenít
discussed what a
wrap-around mortgage is (see
the definition in the FAQ page), but letís just say that with
simultaneous closing, the seller may be able to
create a wrap-around mortgage and sell it within
days of closing,
even if heís still making mortgage payments.
Who benefits the most
from a Simultaneous Closing?
Investors and Renovators
that need to close a property sale quickly in order
to move on to the next project are the ones that can
benefit the most. These investors are used to
dealing with buyers, attorneys, title agencies, etc.
and have the time to devote to any issues that may
arise. They are prime candidates for using this
Homeowners can also
benefit from this, but they cannot be the typical
hands-off homeowner. They have to be willing to
screen potential buyers, set and negotiate the sale
price and terms of the mortgage, deal with the title
agency, note buyer, etc. In sum, they have to be the
hands-on type, and have time on their hands to do all
Loan Originators that
are having problems getting their buyerís approved
through the system due to bad credit, and who have
time constraints, are also candidates.
