Taking a second if the house doesn’t appraise is certainly an option for you if the buyer is still willing to buy.

Selling a note that puts the property in a negative equity position is quite another thing I am sure. While I am by no means a note expert, I would think that a note like that would have very little value in the marketplace as there is no equity to back it up.

Does anyone take back a second mortgage when assigning your interest? ex. Sign contract w/ seller for 95,000, then leaseoption it to your buyer for a 120,000. If the house appraises for only 100,000, do you take back a second mortgage on the remaining 20,000? If so what kind of percentage are we talkin here, if I sell the note almost immeadiately? I realize there are many things working against me here first, its a second mortgage, second its unseasoned, etc…
any feed back is appreciated in advance,

That 2nd mortgage in your example would not be salable due to the LTV. Unless the tenant/ buyer is putting a good chunk of money down to close the deal.

In order to sell the 2nd, the LTV of both 1st and 2nd combined must be at or under the 80% LTV.

Also when that appraisal comes back and your tenant/buyer sees he’s paying $20,000 more than the property is worth, my guess is he’ll run.
